Ohio’s Joint and Several Liability Laws

Ohio’s joint and several liability laws have undergone some recent changes. Effective April 9, 2003, Am. Sub. S.B. 120 renumbered, repealed, and revised the existing Revised Code sections dealing with contributory fault, rights of contribution and related Code provisions. Any cause of action accruing prior to April 9, 2003, however, is still governed by the pre-existing Code sections, as S.B. 120 only applies to causes of action that accrue on or after the effective date.
