It is the same Program, but the Attorney General and the Court of Claims have different roles within the Ohio Crime Victims Compensation Program. The Attorney General reviews and investigates the initial claim, and then issues a Decision. If you disagree with the Attorney General’s Decision, in whole or in part, you have the right to Appeal the Attorney General’s Decision in the Court of Claims. Your Appeal must be filed within 30 days of the Attorney General’s final Decision. The Court will hear your claim and make a final determination.
