Post subject: Question regarding liability.
Post Posted: Tue Sep 06, 2016 4:15 pm
Hello Everyone...
I have been looking for reliable information regarding whether an Ohio resident can be sued in a civil action for a shooting that was found justifiable. Depending on which forum I visit and who is posting I see different answers. Many insist that Ohio provides immunity from such lawsuits. The CCW pamphlet published by the Attorney General (the one I have) states that you can be sued, yet some persons insist that you cannot. Does anyone have accurate, up to date information on Ohio's laws regarding this question ?

Thanks..

I'm not a lawyer, and I haven't taken the time to read it thoroughly but it appears to me that this section of the ORC would apply:

Between us chickens, you probably can be sued for just about anything, even if the Law says you can't.... The anti's are still trying to kill off the PLCA which says that they can't sue a gun manufacturer....

JustaShooter is probably correct, though.

Meantime, Welcome Aboard! There's a sticky at http://forums.buckeyefirearms.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10097 that you should have a look at, but it's not mandatory, and may be sleep inducing. Just the first few pages - things got out of hand after that :D....

Enjoy!
