In Alimo v. Pomante (Sept 11, 1997), Franklin App. No. 97APG02-221, 1997 Ohio App, the parties had entered into an agreement for the repair of a leaky roof, but the completed repairs had not fixed the problem.
In its initial decision, the magistrate found that the homeowner was entitled to the cost of any additional work necessary to correct the leak, but continued the matter to allow the homeowner to present evidence of the proper measure of damages.
The roofer filed objections to the magistrate's decision on liability, but the trial court overruled the objections as "premature."
