Bugbee & Conkle Successful in Ohio Supreme Court in Limiting Employer Intentional Tort Liability under R.C. 2745.01

On December 18, 2014, the Ohio Supreme Court issued a much awaited decision in Pixley v. Pro-Pak Industries, an intentional tort case.  The Court held establishing an intentional tort requires evidence that the employer deliberately intended to cause harm to an employee.  The court declined to address whether an equipment safety guard is limited to a device shielding only the operator from injury.  The Court’s decision is very important to Ohio employers and limits employer intentional tort liability under the statute.  Click here to read the full decision.  We will provide an in-depth analysis of the case in the January, 2015 edition of the Comp Connection.
