Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
The Ohio Pattern Jury Instructions are copyrighted so we cannot put them on here for you, they are available in the local court library through the free access there to "casemaker" or the librarian should have a printed copy for you to use. They also have a sample format in them for you to use.
I am afraid that we are not allowed because of copyright laws to actually copy and paste any of those instructions here for you, but again you can get the format with the general instructions and then you would look up the specific instruction for defamation.
You could if you do not want to go to the court library for free access pay for a casemaker subscription at http://www.casemaker.com to obtain the pattern jury instructions for Ohio.
In addition to the general instructions in the format, you need an instruction on damages and defamation.
I truly aim to please you as a customer, but please keep in mind that I do not know what you already know or don't know, or with what you need help, unless you tell me. Please consider that I am answering the question or question that is posed in your posting based upon my reading of your post and sometimes misunderstandings can occur. If I did not answer the question you thought you were asking, please respond with the specific question you wanted answered.
Kindly remember the ONLY WAY experts receive any credit at all for spending time with customers is if you click on OK, GOOD or EXCELLENT SERVICE even though you have made a deposit or are a subscription customer. YOU MUST COMPLETE THE RATING FOR THE EXPERT TO RECEIVE ANY CREDIT, if not the site keeps your money on deposit.
Also remember, sometimes the law does not support what we want it to support, but that is not the fault of the person answering the question, so please be courteous.
