Special Proceedings Case Management

The purpose of this rule is to establish, pursuant to M.C. Sup. R. 18, a case management system for special PROCEEDINGS to achieve a prompt and fair disposition of these matters. Examples of special proceedings would include default hearings, rent escrow, replevin, contempt hearings, garnishment hearings, debtor’s exams, and B.M.V. hearings.

Cases that have time limits established by the Ohio Revised Code or the Ohio Rules of Civil Procedure shall be set for hearing within those time limits. In all other special PROCEEDINGS, the case shall be set for hearing within a reasonable time not to exceed ninety (90) days.
