Vorys attorney Eve Stratton was quoted by The Vindicator in a story regarding metal health crisis behavior not necessarily being criminal acts.

The article states:

"Retired Ohio Supreme Court Justice Evelyn Lundberg Stratton said one of the biggest obstacles is that people with mental illness can’t make rational decisions on their own, but still aren’t sick enough to be placed in a guardianship. The state failed to create a plan for services when state hospitals were closed, instead using the funds on other things, Stratton said.

The process of guardianship is a huge responsibility for those who undertake it."

Stratton was also referenced in another Vindicator article titled 'Mental Illness Collides with Criminal Justice.'
