Hallmark Building Company, 2012-1722.  Docket  Oral argument, Oct. 9, 2013.  Whether Ohio’s construction statute of repose, codified in R.C. 2305.131, bars plaintiff from pursuing a substantive, vested right in violation of the Ohio Constitution, Article II, Section 28 (retroactivity provision) when the plaintiff filed a claim for damages after the statute’s effective date but when its claim arose before the effective date.  Also, whether two years is a reasonable time for plaintiff to file their claim, as was held in a prior case involving a product liability claim.  Plaintiff asserts the  four years general tort statute of limitations is a reasonable time to file suit.
