Ohio court's visitor center adds plaster cast of Harding

Legal News Center

A plaster cast used to create a sculpture of President Warren G. Harding found at the Ohio Supreme Court is on display in the building's

visitor education center.

The likeness was donated by the former president's family.

It was used to create the sculpture of Harding, a Marion native. It has hung in the building that now houses the state's highest court

since its construction more than 80 years ago.

The fragile plaster cast is housed in an elevated glass enclosure.

Harding was the 29th president and one of eight born in Ohio, earning the state the nickname "Mother of Presidents."

Driver in deadly New Jersey school bus crash due in court

The driver of a school bus that collided with a dump truck on a New Jersey highway last week, killing a student and a teacher and injuring

more than 40 others, is due in court.

Hudy Muldrow Sr. faces two charges of vehicular homicide. He's scheduled for an initial court appearance in Morristown on Friday.

A criminal affidavit released Thursday alleges Muldrow missed a turn and tried to make a U-turn on Interstate 80 westbound on May 17

while carrying a group of fifth-graders and chaperones on a field trip.

Ten-year-old Miranda Vargas and 51-year-old teacher Jennifer Williamson died in the crash. Muldrow's son told CBS this week that his

father said he didn't make a U-turn.

Grounds for Divorce in Ohio - Sylkatis Law, LLC

A divorce in Ohio is filed when there is typically “fault” by one of the parties and party not at “fault” seeks to end the marriage. A court in Ohio may grant a divorce for the following reasons:
• Willful absence of the adverse party for one year
• Adultery
• Extreme cruelty
• Fraudulent contract
• Any gross neglect of duty
• Habitual drunkenness
• Imprisonment in a correctional institution at the time of filing the complaint
• Procurement of a divorce outside this state by the other party

Additionally, there are two “no-fault” basis for which a court may grant a divorce:
• When the parties have, without interruption for one year, lived separate and apart without cohabitation
• Incompatibility, unless denied by either party

However, whether or not the the court grants the divorce for “fault” or not, in Ohio the party not at “fault” will not get a bigger slice of the marital property.
