The Ohio Supreme Court applied the Ohio Constitution’s retroactivity provision, Article II, Section 28, Ohio Constitution, to determine whether an amendment to the prejudgment interest statute in 2004 applied to a cause of action accruing in 2002, filed and dismissed without prejudice in 2003, and then refiled in 2008.  The court held that, “Because the amended statute does not eliminate the right to prejudgment interest but only modifies the remedy available, it applies to causes of action accruing before but filed on or after June 2, 2004, the effective date of the statute.”  Longbottom v. Mercy Hospital ClermontSlip Opinion No. 2013-Ohio-4068.
