Judge Issues Ruling in CMI Lawsuit

May 8, 2018

We wanted to make you aware of the most recent development in the lawsuit filed by CompManagement against the League for exercising the right to change the Third-Party Administrator (TPA) for the League's worker's compensation group rating pool.

Late Monday afternoon, Judge Guy Reece of the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas issued his decision denying CompManagement's motion for a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) against OML. In their lawsuit, CompManagement was seeking a ruling by the court that they own the management rights of the municipalities in OML's group pool. The court rejected CompManagement's TRO request and did not grant their motion finding that CMI's actions were not in the best interest of our municipal employers. A preliminary injunction hearing date has been set for May 21 st in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas.

The League will continue to update our members on future court action regarding this case.
