McDougald v. KuhnAnnotate this Case
The Supreme Court affirmed the judgment of the Fourth District Court of Appeals dismissing Appellant's complaint for a writ of procedendo against Judge Mark Kuhn of the Scioto County Court of Common Pleas, holding that the dismissal of Appellant's complaint was appropriate under the circumstances.
Appellant, an inmate, filed a complaint for a writ of procedendo seeking an order compelling Judge Kuhn to journalize a final judgment of conviction. The Fourth District dismissed Appellant's complaint for lack of jurisdiction. The Supreme Court affirmed on different grounds, holding that the dismissal of Appellant's petition was appropriate because Appellant failed to show a clear legal right to relief in procedendo.
