We are proud to announce that Tybo Alan Wilhelms will retire from his law practice at Bugbee & Conkle on June 1, 2018.
Mr. Wilhelms is a proud Michigan State University alumni and Spartan fan. He received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Toledo Law School in 1976 and has defended employers in state, federal and appeals courts with Bugbee & Conkle continuously since then.
In Ellis v. Columbus Developmental Center, 2018-Ohio-933, the claimant moved to allow her claim for lumbar radiculitis, as well as lumbar disc herniations at two levels. Administratively, the Commission denied the claimant’s motion, leading the claimant to appeal to court pursuant to R.C. 4123.512.Read more
In Seaton v. City of Willoughby, 2018-Ohio-77, an employee of the City of Willoughby, who was an operator of an asphalt roller, died while working on a paving project to patch potholes. While parked on a hill, the asphalt roller unexpectedly began to roll down a hill, causing the employee to jump off the roller. The employee hit his head and he subsequently died from his injuries. The administrator of his estate filed a wrongful death action.Read more
On April 19, 2018, the Ohio Supreme Court decided a very important case for self-insured employers who have subrogation rights under R.C. 4123.931. In Bur. of Work. Comp. v. Verlinger, 2018-Ohio-148, the claimant filed a workers’ compensation claim for injuries arising from an automobile accident. Initially, the Bureau denied the claim. After referral to the Commission, a district hearing officer disallowed the claim.Read more
If you thought that the passage of Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Control Program, which is set to become fully effective on September 8, 2018, would end the debate on marijuana use in Ohio, you are wrong. On May 17, 2018, the Ohio Ballot Board certified a proposed constitutional amendment titled Marijuana Rights and Regulations, which we previously reported on.
This proposed constitutional amendment seeks to establish marijuana use as a “right” of adult Ohio citizens age 21 and older.
We are proud to welcome Elizabeth L. Bolduc to Bugbee & Conkle as the newest member of our Labor & Employment practice!
Elizabeth was born in Jacksonville Florida and loves the warm weather, sunshine and the beach. She moved to Toledo in middle-school and looks forward to the opportunity to give back to and get more involved with the Toledo Community.
