Political Subdivision Liability

Cities, counties, and their agencies, offices, departments, and employees provide essential administrative, inspection, maintenance, peace-keeping, safety, transportation, and social services to the public.

In these many and varied roles, political subdivisions and their employees face potential litigation for employment discrimination, constitutional rights violations, federal and state statutory rights violations, breach of contract, bodily injury, injury to reputation, property damage, recklessness, and negligent hiring/supervision, among other things.

However, Ohio law recognizes that in many of these circumstances, the political subdivisions and their employees are immune from liability for claims whether made by other employees or the public.

Williams & Schoenberger Co., LLC has extensive experience defending political subdivisions and political subdivision employees from all manner of claims, including a proven track record of success in asserting statutory immunity from liability.
