Anderson's Free Online Ohio Revised Code Now Offers Annotations

David Whelan of the Cincinnati Law Library Association reports the following:

"Anderson has added annotations, legislative commentary, and more to its free version of the Ohio Revised Code, online. This was a useful service in the past, but it's even better now that you get case citations and cross-references to secondary materials like Ohio Jurisprudence 3d.

The case citations are not cross-linked but the statutes are, so you can jump around the ORC without having to retype your citations. I tested the citation list against the Lexisone free case law search. There are fewer citations (Lexisone brought up 41 cases in the past 2 years citing ORC ยง 2903.06 while there are far fewer annotated cites for the same time period in Andersons ORC online) but it doesn't diminish the great enhancement the case annotations provide.

Keen eyes will have noted that both the Lexisone free case law cite and Anderson are LexisNexis subsidiaries. "

    Ken: my browser cannot find the link you provide for Anderson's ORC. Is it wrong or perhaps the site's just down right now?

    We have a fire chief that is not an EMT of any kind, does not even have a current CPR card. He comes on Emergency Medical Calls and tells us how to treat a patients (he states that he just suggests it) we say to him, "my license my call" he states that in the state of ohio the law is that the fire chief is incharge of all calls. We will do what he says or he will fire us on the spot. He states he is not doing patient care but just telling us how to do it. Seems real stupid but this is true. We have looked on line and cannot find any law to support our position. I am sure that he cannot touch a patient period. We have no union, we are all part-time.
    Thank you..HELPLESS IN OHIO

    Go to your county Prosecutor and get a ruling. He is in charge of a scene, but not patient care. He can drive a patient care vehicle but until he has a card to treat should not be in the patient care area.
