Wilhelm‑Kissinger v. Kissinger, 2011 ‑Ohio‑ 2317 (Ohio Supreme Court, May 19, 2011): Order in divorce proceeding denying husband’s motion to disqualify wife’s attorney did not affect a substantial right, and thus was not final and appealable; husband had no substantial right to disqualify opposing counsel, and denial of disqualification lacked any permanent effect, since it could be revisited throughout proceedings.
