Supreme Court won't hear appeal in Yavorcik case


COLUMBUS — The Ohio Supreme Court announced today that it will not hear an appeal from prosecutors to reverse a court of appeals’ decision to vacate the eight felony convictions of Martin Yavorcik in his Oakhill Renaissance Place corruption case.

In a 4-2 decision, the court declined to take up the appeal.

The Cleveland-based 8th District Court of Appeals vacated the convictions May 10 writing in a 3-0 decision that Cuyahoga County was the wrong place to conduct Yavorcik’s trial.
