We didn’t have pictures in court but now we do (we dug through our camera rolls and found tons) we moved in and the floors were awful... View More
First, I am not an Ohio lawyer. That being said, an appeal is always an option. Check the court rules about when you must note an appeal, and the next steps after that. It seems from your story that you might have an appeal issue.
