Judge Frost to discuss federal practice at Columbus Bar
~ written by Chad Readler and Brian Selden, Federal Courts Committee Co-Chairs
On May 31 at noon, United States District Court Judge Gregory Frost will join the Federal Court committee to discuss practicing in federal court, including tips for crafting the best possible jury instructions - and the ones most likely to be adopted by the court.
Judge Frost recently completed his third year as a member of the federal judiciary. Before his appointment to the Southern District of Ohio, Judge Frost sat for thirteen years as a judge on the Licking County Common Pleas Court, and for seven years before then as a judge on the Licking County Municipal Court. During his service as a member of the state judiciary, Judge Frost served for nine years as chair of the Ohio Judicial Conference's Jury Instructions committee, where he helped craft the pattern instructions published in the Ohio Jury Instructions manual. In addition, Judge Frost helped implement the electronic publishing and updating of OJI .
A native of Newark, Judge Frost is a graduate of Wittenburg University and Ohio Northern University Law School. Before joining the state bench, Judge Frost handled both criminal and civil litigation matters, serving as an assistant Licking County prosecutor and as a partner with Schaller Frost Hostetter & Campbell.
We look forward to Judge Frost's visit and hope that you will join us on May 31.
