More Supreme Court of Ohio Decisions Released

By my count, there are 34 new opinions on the Reporter of Decisions web page.
One that is garnering particular interest is:

CLEVELAND BAR ASSOCIATION v. COMPMANAGEMENT, INC., ET AL.
[Cite as Cleveland Bar Assn. v. CompManagement, Inc., ___ Ohio St.3d ___,
2004-Ohio-6506.]

Here is the syllabus:

SYLLABUS OF THE COURT
Nonlawyers who appear and practice in a representative capacity before the
Industrial Commission and the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation in
conformity to Industrial Commission Resolution No. R04-1-01 are not
engaged in the unauthorized practice of law.

Justice Resnick authored the majority opinion (5-2) in which Chief Justice Moyer and Justices Lundberg Stratton, O'Connor, and O'Donnell (concurring in the judgment only) concurred. Justice Sweeney dissented, and Justice Pfeifer dissented with about a 1-page opinion.
