Maestle and Cappel Notch Another Victory for Weston Hurd in the Ohio Supreme Court. In State ex rel. Yeaples v. Gall, Slip Opinion No. 2014 -Ohio-­4724, the Ohio Supreme Court agreed with Shawn W. Maestle and Carolyn M. Cappel’s argument that Relator, Donald Yeaples, was not entitled to either a Writ of Mandamus or Procedendo because he had failed to properly plead a co­employee workplace intentional tort. Consequently, the co-­employee on the worksite at the time of Yeaples’ injury was merely a nominal party and venue was not proper in Cuyahoga County.
