CSI Myths and Realities Discussion Part of Ohio Common Pleas Summer Conference

An inside look at the myths and realities of crime scene investigations (CSI) is just one of the topics judges will study at the Ohio Common Pleas Judges’ Association 2012 Summer Conference.

Judge Donald E. Shelton of Washtenaw County Trial Court in Ann Arbor, Michigan, will present “The CSI Effect,” an examination of judges’, jurors’ and litigators’ expectations for scientific evidence during trials. The Ohio Common Pleas Judges’ Association three-day educational conference also features sessions on judicial ethics, evidence, and final appealable orders.

Ohio Supreme Court Justice Judith Ann Lanzinger and Michael Walsh, Ninth District Court of Appeals magistrate and court administrator, will also give an overview of the New Writing Manual at the conference. Other updates scheduled for the meeting include an overview of Ohio veterans courts and a legislative and civil law update.

The Supreme Court of Ohio Judicial College works with the association to plan the education program.
