Hide Profile

Supreme Court of Ohio originated with Ohio 1802 constitution. Initially two judges and later four were appointed by the legislature, travelling to individual counties where terms were held once each year. Once yearly all judges also gathered at the capital for a general term. Cases heard before the court were suits involving more than $1000, cases appealed from common pleas court, divorce (until 1844), and capital punishment cases. This system continued until constitutional changes occurred in 1851 and the duties of the Supreme Court were taken over by the district courts which existed until 1883.
