NOTE:  Attorney Conley tells The Report that only about 6% of cases filed on appeal are accepted by the Supreme Court.  Within one to three months the court will determine whether or not to accept Swanson's appeal.


What is the saying?

"There is no rest for the wicked?"

The SCPR wouldn't exactly characterize Sheriff George T. Maier as being wicked, but in the mind of yours truly he is certainly deserving everything he has gotten in terms of litigation he has had to deal ever since he usurped (per the Ohio Supreme Court in ruling on a Writ of Quo Warranto) to the office of Stark County sheriff on February 5, 2013.

On November 6th, the Supreme Court removed from office whereupon he was reappointed by the Stark County Democratic Party on December 11, 2013.

Since then he as been challenged in the Ohio Supreme Court with a Writ of Prohibition on his eligibility to run for sheriff in November, 2014; a proceeding he won.

Now its a trifecta for Maier, perhaps?

On Friday, yours truly was notified that former Sheriff Timothy Swanson's legal counsel (Craig T. Conley [also the attorney in the Stark Board of Elections/Ohio Supreme Court case of March, 2014]) will be filing with the Supreme Court an appeal of an adverse 5th District Court of Appeals on a civil liability suit filed by Swanson against Maier in Stark County Court of Common Pleas Court in 2014 (which Swanson lost) for Swanson to be compensated (as Ohio statutory law seems to provide for) for the pay that was paid out to Maier for the time period he was a usurper.

Later today check back for a copy of Conley's Memorandum in Support of the Ohio Supreme Court accepting Swanson's appeal from the Fifth District Court of Appeals (see the adverse to Swanson decision immediately below).

One thing about Swanson legal counsel Craig T. Conley is that he as long as his client keeps the faith with him is never, ever going to let go.

As far as The Report is concerned, to say it again, Maier deserves everything he get.

Yours truly thinks he and his brother Johnnie A. Maier, Jr. (a former Stark Dems' chairman) are political bullies of the first order who do not respect the processes of law insofar as they may conflict with their personal political ambitions.

It is always nice when folks such as George and Johnnie have to experience some of what they dish out!
