Court of Appeals Denies Intentional Tort Claim

Over the last several months, Ohio’s courts of appeals have decided several important intentional tort cases.  In Wright v. Mar-Bal, Inc., 2013-Ohio-5647, the 11th District Court of Appeals continued a trend among the courts to construe the intentional tort law favorably for employers.  The Wright court denied an intentional tort claim where the employee was injured because the employer allegedly failed to follow safety protocols.  The court emphasized there must be evidence the employer deliberately intended harm to the employee in order to prevail on an intentional tort claim.  Read the full decision here.
