Chairperson of the Ohio Adult Parole Authority, Respondent.
Harris, pro se.
Michael DeWine, Attorney General, and George Horvath, for
1} Relator, Lionel Harris, has filed this original
action requesting this court issue a writ of mandamus
ordering respondent, Ohio Adult Parole Authority
("OAPA"), to provide him with records pursuant to
his public records request. OAPA filed a motion to dismiss,
arguing relator failed to comply with the mandatory
requirements of R.C. 2969.25(A).
2} This matter was referred to a magistrate of this
court, pursuant to Civ.R. 53 and LocR. 13(M) of the Tenth
District Court of Appeals. The magistrate issued the appended
decision, including findings of fact and conclusions of law,
and recommended this court grant OAPAs motion to dismiss. No
objections have been filed to that decision.
3} As there have been no objections filed to the
magistrate's decision, and it contains no error of law or
other defect on its face, based on an independent review of
the file, this court adopts the magistrate's decision.
OAPA's motion to dismiss is granted, and the action is
and LUPER SCHUSTER, JJ., concur.
