Date Filed Document Text
May 15, 2009 Opinion or Order Filing 247 Memorandum Opinion and Order of Case Dismissal. Defendants' motions to dismiss are granted. (Related doc. nos. 197 , 199 , 202 , 205 , 207 , 208 , 209 , 228 ). The City's public nuisance claim fails as a matter of law because (1) it is preempted by Ohio Revised Code § 1.63; (2) it is barred by the economic loss rule; (3) the City's allegations fail to demonstrate an unreasonable interference with a public right; and (4) the City's allegations are insuffici ent to demonstrate that Defendants' conduct was the proximate cause of its alleged damages. The Second Amended Complaint is dismissed with prejudice.(Related doc. 189 ). Motion by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency for Leave to Appear Amicus Curiae is denied as moot.(Related doc. 224 ). Signed by Judge Sara Lioi on 5/15/2009. (B,IE)
