The Village of Middleport, Ohio has entered into a consent decree reforming the procedures used in its Mayor’s Court.  Tammy Thomas challenged the Court procedures when she was unable to present witnesses in her traffic case.  She also claimed that the Mayor was not a neutral decision maker since he had an incentive to collect fines to fund city services.  The case was settled with a consent decree.  Damages were also paid to Ms. Thomas.  Pomeroy attorney Trenton Cleland was co-counsel with Al Gerhardstein on the case.
