PUBLIC NOTICE


In the Public Interest, the philosophy of “Non-Offensive conduct” (or N-O contact) makes for good policy at all stages of CIVIL protection in various courts. Am seeking to develop a working group or task force-- originally inspired by selected Asst. Atty’s General -- to explore factors in the development of pilot N.O. contact CPO form in Summit County, consistent with local rules and under the supervision of the Ohio Supreme Court. The human focus is to endeavor to ALLOW all valid purposeful inter-personal contact, including possibly even sharing a domicile (avoiding the harsh outcome of immediate homelessness in some scenarios - thus creating a “Civilian Projected Outdoors”) and in general engendering a civil atmosphere as devoid of anxieties over the legal process, as possible, so CPOs do not -- by themselves -- function to frighten. The non-offensive contact/conduct philosophy has proven successful in approriate settings in the Empire State and would satisfy the public interest, as in any enlightened society, in the merits of fostering essential human communication as to the concerns of day-to-day living (e.g. matters of child raising), rather than criminalizing the same, for actions which otherwise would not be criminal. In practical terms, a non-offensive contact CPO might enable the parties to spend some time discussing the provisions of the Consent Agreement option. Currently there is no known method (without expensive legal representation) via which these persons can intelligently consider the many parameters and provisions of the boiler plate CPO’s. A non-offensive contact ex parte order (when there is no truly impending danger which is apparent at all, or a pending criminal matter) would allow the parties to talk in a quiet supervised area, about their shared life concerns, and generally yield better long term effects. Please contact your local court administrator (who the writer will in turn contact) to express any interest. *1034
