WMOA News spoke with Common Pleas
Judge Ed Lane about the book and its contents.
“They talk about how three judges
are not enough for Hamilton County. There are reports about the cases they’re
hearing, which is really interesting,”
Lane says, adding with a chuckle, “What I find most interesting is that even
then they were complaining that there were not enough judges.”
Judge Lane says the digest describes
a variety of issues relating to the founding of Ohio.
“They refer to Indian territories
within the (Northwest) Territory; they refer to judges in those areas; they
refer to judges in early villages; to district judges and others – so it
appears to me to be a hodgepodge."
