Ohio Medical Criteria Applies Retroactively (again)

NEAL v. A-BEST PRODS. CO. holds that the medical criteria to file an asbestos lawsuit (RC 2307.91, et. seq.) may apply retroactively without violating the Ohio state constitution's prohibition against retroactive laws. Not the first time an appellate court in Ohio has held this but also not the first time an Ohio trial court struck it down as violating the retroactivity rule.

So, you actually have to be sick to file in Ohio.
