Gov. John Kasich selects law professor, alum to assist with Supreme Court nomination

Gov. John R. Kasich recently announced he will accept applications from attorneys who would like to be considered for appointment to the Supreme Court of Ohio. Along with that announcement, Kasich named seven legal professionals who will help him and his staff evaluate applicants. Law professor Jonathan Adler and alumnus Charles Brown were among those selected by the governor. Alumnus Mike Grodhaus (LAW ’84), chief counsel for the governor’s office, will oversee the selection process.

Adler, the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law and director of the Center for Business Law & Regulation, has been a professor at the law school since 2001. He is a past recipient of the Paul M. Bator Award, given annually by the Federalist Society for Law and Policy Studies for excellence in teaching, scholarship and commitment to students.

Brown (LAW ’67) recently announced his retirement from the Stark County Court of Common Pleas, where he served as a judge for 11 years.  Previously he was the senior partner at Brown, Lundgren & Goldthorpe.
