10th District Court of Appeals (Franklin County)

ISSUE: May a plaintiff who brings a civil suit against a defendant be found liable for damages for “malicious litigation” based on a jury’s finding that the plaintiff’s motive for filing suit was to harass or injure the defendant if there is not also a finding by the court that the plaintiff’s complaint was objectively baseless?
