Amendment to Local Rule 2 and Request for Comments



Proposed Amendment to Local Rule 2

The Domestic Relations Division of the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas is requesting comments regarding proposed Local Rule 2 ((Assignment of Judges and Consolidation of Cases), 2.1 (Administrative Judge and Unavailability of Assigned Judge), and 2.2 (Scheduling of Cases).

Rule 2 had been separated into three parts. Proposed Rule 2 addresses reassignment of cases when a 'family case type' is filed pursuant to H.B. 595, and where necessary, the consolidation of cases. Proposed Rule 2.1 makes capitalization and punctuation changes and does not change content. Proposed Rule 2.2 removes unnecessary provisions, simplifies language, and changes punctuation and capitalization.

The Court will accept comments regarding the rule amendment through June 30, 2020.  Please direct any comments to:
