Akron Bar Association Announces 2019 Judicial Ratings

The Akron Bar Association Commission on Judicial Candidates has been established by the Akron Bar Association to evaluate candidates for local judgeships. The Commission rates the candidates “Excellent,” “Good,” “Adequate,” or “Not Acceptable.” Ratings are based on seven criteria: integrity, legal knowledge and ability, professional experience, judicial temperament, diligence, personal responsibility, and public and community service.

The Akron Bar Association has created a website http://www.YouBeTheJudgeSummitCounty.com – to not only promote the Commission’s ratings, but to serve as a central source of information about the local judicial candidates appearing on the November ballot. In addition to the ratings, links to the candidates’ websites and social media pages can be found easily.

All ratings require a majority vote of the Commission; a rating of “Excellent” requires two thirds super majority of the Commission. The ratings are not intended to be a comparison or endorsement of candidates, but only represent the Commission’s evaluation of each individual candidate’s qualifications for the specific office sought.

A rating of “Adequate” requires a vote of a majority of the Commission members present. If a candidate is rated “Adequate,” a second ballot is taken to determine if the rating “Good” will be awarded, also requiring a vote of the majority of the Commission members present. If a candidate is rated “Good,” a third ballot is taken to determine if the rating “Excellent” will be awarded. The “Excellent” rating requires the affirmative vote of a two-thirds majority of the Commission members present.

The Commission is comprised of 28 experienced members of the Akron Bar Association selected by its Municipal Courts Committee, Common Pleas & Appellate Courts Committee, Family Law Section, Probate Law Section, the Chair of the Commission, and the Bar President. No more than 50% of the Commission may be from any one political party. All candidates complete a questionnaire containing extensive biographical data and submit relevant materials, including writing samples. References for the candidates are interviewed and intensive interviews of the candidates are conducted.

This year, the Commission, chaired by Chris Esker with Michael Elliot serving as vice-chair, evaluated the judicial candidates running in the election scheduled for November 5, 2019.

An Important Message from C. Allen Nichols

I have been working with the Ohio State Bar Association (OSBA) to address increasing concern over the Ohio Legislature’s decision to single out attorneys as the only state-licensed professionals no longer eligible for the state’s Business Income Deduction. 

OSBA is concerned that solo/small firm practitioners are positioned to be hard hit by House Bill (HB)166. To put some perspective around that, nearly half of our Akron Bar members fall into this category. 

Under current Ohio law, pass-through entities pay no tax on the first $250,000 of income. In excluding lawyers from the deduction, the amendment will have significant implications on the tax liabilities of many lawyers and create disparate treatment in Ohio's tax code among similarly-situated business entities with seemingly no basis for doing so.

Even though Governor Mike Dewine has signed the bill, there is hope that -- with enough pressure from the legal community -- it will come under review and be rescinded in the fall time frame. That’s where your help is needed.  

The OSBA is asking concerned attorneys to take part in a letter writing campaign to their State Representatives. The purpose is to raise consideration around the fairness of singling out a profession, making it known that solo/small practices will be significantly impacted and letting them know all that attorney’s do to support the economy and local communities. 

To help you get started, here is a fact sheet, sample letter and a completed letter written by one of our own Akron Bar members. 

I will continue to provide updates through the Association’s e-newsletters and emails as appropriate. In the meantime, please take a few minutes to send a letter to your state representative.

Ninth District Court Names New Mediator

The Ninth District Court of Appeals has selected John Minter to serve as the Court’s new Mediation Attorney.  More than two dozen attorneys applied, from out-of-state to local attorneys.  The Court conducted preliminary interviews with more than a dozen applicants and narrowed the pool to six.  The finalists completed a mediation simulation before a second interview.

Mr. Minter has a varied background in private practice and the public sector, but his extensive mediation experience distinguished him. He comes to the Ninth District from the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas where he served as a mediator for the General Division of the Court and as the Assistant Dispute Resolution Department Administrator. Prior to becoming the assistant administrator, Mr. Minter was the director of the Cuyahoga County Court’s Foreclosure Mediation Program.

Mr. Minter’s experience with mediation began in law school.  He served as a mediator in the Franklin County Small Claims Court as a law student.  After graduation, he was an associate attorney in a law firm and a staff attorney at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, working with law students in mediation practicum courses.

Mr. Minter was selected by the law school to serve as the Langdon Fellow in Dispute Resolution.  In that position, he organized mediation training sessions for law students and other professionals, enhanced the dispute resolution program, and continued to work as a staff attorney for mediation practicum courses.

In private practice, he had a varied caseload, covering criminal defense, probate, domestic, and juvenile.  He also served as a contract mediator.  In the public sector, Mr. Minter served as an attorney in the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office where he represented Marion County Children Services in trial court and appellate cases.

Mr. Minter will start with the Ninth District Court of Appeals on June 17, 2019.

Paul Perantinides Invests in WKSU's Independent Journalism: Newsroom to Be Named "The Perantinides & Nolan Newsroom" Through Transformational Gift 

WKSU’s state-of-art newsroom will be named The Perantinides & Nolan Newsroom, thanks to a transformational $250,000 gift from Attorney Paul G. Perantinides. The newsroom was reimagined and expanded in 2016 and is located within the WKSU Broadcast Center at Kent State University. The interactive space is the heart of WKSU’s news and information public service to the Northeast Ohio community, serving as the organizational hub and workspace for the station’s award-winning news team and Kent State student interns. This current-use gift is only the second at this level in WKSU history.

WKSU Executive Director and General Manager Wendy Turner says, “This gift in support of the WKSU newsroom strengthens local journalism in our region. Across the country, local news ecosystems are severely challenged by collapsing business models.  Because of vast community support and historic investments like this one – WKSU is positioned to pick up the slack. Funding local news is an act of philanthropy but it's also an investment in the civic and cultural life of our region.”

Perantinides, a longtime member of WKSU’s Community Advisory Council, is committed to WKSU’s focus on public service journalism and the role it plays in preserving democracy by providing essential information to the public. The funds from Perantinides’ landmark gift will support the WKSU news operation – the journalists, editors, producers and student interns who work to cover Northeast Ohio news with depth and excellence – and will help the station to pursue new, impactful reporting projects and partnerships. 

Perantinides says, “It takes significant resources for WKSU to function at such a high level and I feel that we have a moral obligation to use our resources to help transform the community in a way that is valuable to all of us. We’re sending a loud and clear message to the community that we’re all in it together – and that Perantinides & Nolan and WKSU have an important alignment.”

Turner adds, “We are so grateful to Paul for his decades of support to WKSU and for his service on our Community Advisory Council.  Paul's commitment to Akron, and the region, through his work and philanthropy, make us proud to partner with him in this effort.”

As a prominent attorney and through his volunteer and philanthropy work, Paul Perantinides has been a leader in the Akron community for five decades. He’s been serving as a trial attorney for 50 years, most notably with his firm, Perantinides & Nolan. His commitment to WKSU spans more than 30 years, serving as a member of WKSU’s Community Advisory Council for 20 years where he has offered valuable guidance and support to the station. Perantinides is committed to preserving the rights of others, advocating for causes, pursuing the truth and promoting justice – in his professional, philanthropic and personal life.

“It’s admirable that WKSU has been an award-winning organization for decades, is well-respected and the WKSU/NPR brand is one that we’re fortunate to have in our community,” Perantinides says. “We [Perantinides & Nolan] are honored to have this opportunity to support an organization that has done so much good.”

WKSU is an award-winning public radio station and service of Kent State University that broadcasts to 22 counties in Northeast Ohio from the station’s primary signal at 89.7. WKSU content can also be heard over WKRW 89.3 (Wooster), WKRJ 91.5 (Dover/New Philadelphia), WKSV 89.1 (Thompson), WNRK 90.7 (Norwalk), W239AZ 95.7 (Ashland) and W234CX 94.7 (Mansfield). The station adds WKSU-2 Folk Alley, WKSU-3 The Classical Channel and WKSU-4 The News Channel over HD Radio and as streaming audio at www.wksu.org, through the WKSU mobile and on smart speakers.
