This guide is intended to give some basic information on Consumer Law in Ohio.
Ohio consumer law is a broad term that ecompasses many unique topics. Many of these individual topics have their own subtopics, as well. For example, a major topic such as automobiles will have a number of subtopics, like odometer fraud, warranties, and lemon laws. Automobiles will also cross paths with other areas, such as leasing, insurance, and deceptive sales practices, to name a few.
No matter the topic, Ohio consumer laws are set up with the purpose of protecting Ohio's consumers. The complexity of consumer protection law requires that practitioners have detailed information available to them. Each year, courts decide hundreds of decisions and the General Assembly passes several pieces of legislation, from which analysts write stacks of commentary, all with the purpose of protecting Ohio consumers.
