Evelyn Lundberg Stratton, of counsel in the Vorys Columbus office who prior to joining Vorys served as justice on the Supreme Court of Ohio for 16 years, was the focus of a WHIZ story about the possible formation of veteran’s courts in Ohio. According the story, veteran’s courts will help veterans cope with PTSD and other disorders from wartime trauma.

The story states:

“‘So many of the issues that end up causing them to go to jail could have been averted if we could have gotten to them before they started self-medicating,’ Lundberg Stratton said. ‘If we could have helped them re-adjust, if we could realize that we need to deal with their post traumatic stress disorder.’

Lundberg Stratton added that there is an estimate of between 300,000 and 500,000 veterans returning from war with some kind of traumatic brain injury.”
