Ohio High Court Justice Beats Democrat, Keeps Seat


UPDATED: Wednesday November 7, 2012 1:11 AM

Justice Terrence O'Donnell has defeated Democratic state Sen. Mike Skindell in one of three Ohio Supreme Court races.
   
The Cleveland Republican beat the suburban Cleveland lawmaker Tuesday for a six-year term. O'Donnell joined the court in 2003.
   
In a second race, Republican Justice Robert Cupp, of Lima (LY'-muh), faced Democrat William O'Neill, a retired appeals court judge from Cleveland. O'Neill had a slight lead with about 90 percent of precincts reporting.
   
The third race included a bid by the court's lone Democrat to serve an unexpired term through 2014. Justice Yvette McGee Brown, of Columbus, was trailing Republican Sharon Kennedy, a Butler County domestic relations judge.
   
McGee Brown was appointed in 2010 to fill a vacancy left when Maureen O'Connor became chief justice.
