How many issues can appear in a motions? 1 Answers as of October 04, 2011

Is there any provision in the Local Rules in Ohio dealing with too many mistakes appearing in motions etc? Not just single misspelling but documents from somebody else's case substituted in another court?

No, there is really not a rule against misstates within a motion/brief. Often, attorneys will cut-and-paste from other briefs that they have written on a topic (especially if they were successful in a prior case with the topic). But if the client is concerned that there are too many mistakes, then he/she should bring it up with the attorney. Sometimes it is an inadvertent mistake that the attorney can fix with a corrected motion, but if the client feels that his case is threatened by the mistakes, he/she should bring the issue to his attorney's attention and, if it's that bad, seek a new attorney.
