Ohio Lawyer publishes Jalandoni and Shouvlin's article

Attorneys Darcy Jalandoni and David Shouvlin’s article, “Ohio and Twombly/Iqbal: Plausible?” was published in the May/June issue of Ohio Lawyer. Jalandoni and Shouvlin write, “In 2007, the Supreme Court took a swat at a hornet’s nest—the questioned validity of notice pleading—in Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly, which caused considerable consternation in civil procedure circles. The hornets are still circling, and nowhere more disjointedly than in Ohio. At issue is the meaning of the language of Rule 8 of the Federal and Ohio Rules of Civil Procedure requiring that a complaint need only provide “a short and plain statement of the claim showing that the pleader [party] is entitled to relief.”
