About the Speaker
Daniel R. Borchert has been an attorney with the Ohio Court of Claims since 1979 and was appointed Deputy Clerk in 1985 by the Ohio Supreme Court. In July 2014, Mr. Borchert was appointed as a Magistrate and is currently assigned to hear appeals from decisions rendered by the Attorney General under the Victims of Crime Compensation Act. In addition to his responsibilities with the appellate division of the Ohio Victims of Crime Compensation Program, Mr. Borchert renders administrative decisions in civil cases filed against the state for $10,000 or less.
About the Court's Program
Once a final decision has been rendered by the Attorney General, an applicant has 30 days within which to file a notice of appeal with the Court of Claims. Within 90 days of receiving the notice of appeal, the Court will schedule an oral hearing. The Court will determine the appeal within 60 days of the oral hearing.
Under Ohio law, an attorney must submit his or her fees directly to the Ohio Victims of Crime Compensation Program for consideration.
