Here are the latest:

SYLLABUS: 2005-021
Because of the statutory powers granted to the Ohio Turnpike Commission
pursuant to R.C. Chapter 5537, the Ohio Turnpike Commission is not required to
comply with Ohio’s licensed vendor program, established pursuant to R.C.
3304.28 to R.C. 3304.35, in the provision of vending operations at service plazas
on the Ohio Turnpike. Therefore, the Ohio Turnpike Commission is not required
to permit the Bureau of Services for the Visually Impaired to determine whether
to provide vending services operated by licensed vendors at newly reconstructed
Ohio Turnpike service plazas before the Ohio Turnpike Commission may contract
with private vendors for the provision of those services.

SYLLABUS: 2005-022
A person may serve as a part-time administrative hearing officer for a county
child support enforcement agency and part-time magistrate of a court of common
pleas in an adjacent county, provided that as a magistrate she does not preside
over cases involving the child support enforcement agency that employs her as an
administrative hearing officer. (1989 Op. Att’y Gen. No. 89-072, distinguished.)

SYLLABUS: 2005-023
1. A county prosecuting attorney who elects not to engage in the private
practice of law may serve as the financial manager and office
administrator of a private law firm and a licensed title insurance agent,
provided that as an insurance agent he does not sell, solicit, or negotiate
title insurance with respect to a governmental entity he is required to
advise or represent in his capacity as county prosecuting attorney, and
further provided that such service does not violate any provision of R.C.
Chapter 102 or R.C. 2921.42-.43, or rule, ethical consideration, or canon
of the Supreme Court Rules for the Government of the Bar of Ohio or the
Code of Professional Responsibility.
2. A county prosecuting attorney who elects not to engage in the private
practice of law may serve as the financial manager and office
administrator of a private law firm and a licensed title insurance agent, but
in his capacity as financial manager, office administrator, and licensed title
insurance agent, he may not perform an activity that constitutes the
“practice of law” as defined by the Ohio Supreme Court.
