Q: Must all plaintiffs , who file a case in commom pleas courts in ohio , have standing ..??

Standing requires an injured party as complaintant so if the state of ohio filed criminal charges in common pleas if there is no injured party would the state lack standing ???

A: If this is a criminal case, and the crime occurred within the State of Ohio, then venue is appropriate. The fact that there is no injured party does not make a lack of standing. For example, traffic tickets, speeding and the like, there is no injured party. But, there is a violation of the law.

Best wishes. I hoped the foregoing helped.
