Ohio Dems endorse Black for high court

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Tim Black has been endorsed by the Ohio Democratic Party executive committee for an open seat on the Ohio Supreme Court.

        Judge Black, who has been a municipal judge since 1993, will be opposed in the November election by Ohio Lt. Gov. Maureen O'Connor. They are running for a seat on the Ohio Supreme Court being vacated by Justice Andrew Douglas.

        The Democratic Party endorsed Judge Black on Saturday.

        Judge Black ran unsuccessfully for an Ohio Supreme Court seat in November 2000, achieving more than 48 percent of the vote, which party officials called an “impressive showing for a first-time statewide candidate.”

        Judge Black, who had been a practicing trial lawyer here for 10 years before being elected to the municipal court in 1993, was re-elected to the court in 1999.
