Friday First District Roundup: Arbitration

Each Friday, we highlight decisions of the First District Court of Appeals in the past week. For question about these cases, contact Vanessa Seeger.

There were several cases considered on the accelerated calendar and judgments were entered but no opinions issued. They are:

State v. Woods

State v. Mills 

State v. Allen

In Re: C.T. 

The only opinion issued this week is:

Board of Trustees of Anderson Township, Ohio v. Anderson Township Professional Firefighters Association, IAFF Local 3111 
Case #C-180371
2019 WL 2452510


Where the arbitrator’s award did not conflict with the terms of the parties’ collective-bargaining agreement, had a rational nexus to the agreement, and was not arbitrary, capricious, or unlawful, the award drew its essence from the agreement and the trial court did not err in denying plaintiff’s motion to vacate the award.
