The Ohio Supreme Court specifically noted that the parties to the underlying lawsuit did not dispute whether 1989 or 2006 version of the DMA applied so the court applied the 2006 DMA, as amended. The issue of which version applies will be decided in Corban v. Chesapeake Exploration, L.L.C. and Walker v. Shondrick-Nau, which are pending before the Court. Corban v. Chesapeake Exploration, L.L.C. was argued to the Court on May 6, 2015 and Walker v. Shondrick-Nau is scheduled for oral argument on June 23, 2015.
