Cummins v. Minster 2-14-15Standard of review is de novo as set forth in R.C. 2505.01. Trial court erred in finding no error in allowing the mayor and the attorney who prosecuted the claim to participate in the deliberations of the Village Council when it was hearing the appeal of the mayor's decision to terminate the police officer. The error was harmless though when there was no taint from the ex parte communication during the original hearing and the trial court conducted a de novo review of the case including taking new evidence. The judgment of the trial court was supported by competent and credible evidence. The trial court did not abuse its discretion in determining that the behavior of the officer supported the decision to terminate his employment.WillamowskiAuglaize 10/5/2015 10/5/2015 2015-Ohio-4129
