Ex-Cuyahoga County commissioner wants high court to hear corruption case

Jimmy Dimora was convicted in 2012 on bribery charges

CLEVELAND

An attorney for a former Cleveland-area county official convicted in a public corruption case says they’re asking the U.S. Supreme Court to consider his request for a new trial.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati previously upheld former Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora’s 2012 conviction and 28-year sentence on bribery-related offenses.

His appeals attorney, Christian Grostic, tells The Plain Dealer they’ve sent the high court a request to hear and review his argument for a new trial.

Grostic argues that the trial judge wrongly denied their attempt to present Dimora’s ethics disclosure forms as evidence that could show that alleged bribes were gifts he had disclosed.

The newspaper says a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office declined to comment on Dimora’s latest request.
