There Is A New Judge In The Oakwood Municipal Court

November 8th, 2013

Oakwood Municipal CourtThe Oakwood Municipal Court will soon be under the leadership of Margaret M. Quinn.  She took 22 percent of the votes, or 724, with all precincts counted. Other candidates vying for the Oakwood Municipal Court bench included Ward Barrentine, Chris Conard, Chris Epley, Sara Hein, Michael Hochwalt, Brian Huelsman, and Richard Lipowicz.

The Oakwood Municipal Court serves just 9,202 citizens and has a case load about one-tenth of another Montgomery County municipal court.  Oakwood Municipal Court serves the smallest municipal court population and second-smallest caseload in Ohio prompting some to wonder whether or not the Oakwood Municipal Court would be consolidated with another court.  Consolidation, however, is unlikely.  As quoted in the Dayton Daily News, “It would take an act of the state legislature to close our court and confer that jurisdiction on another court,” Oakwood Law Director Rob Jacques said. “They’re not going to do that unless they know that there’s going to be a cost savings agreement in place between those communities.”

Here is a video of Judge Quinn from her campaign web site.
