MOUNT GILEAD, OHIO (AP) - An Ohio city court says it will only accept new case filings from people who bring their own paper.

Judge Lee McClelland of Morrow County Municipal Court in north-central Ohio says the court has just enough paper to handle hearing notices and other documents for pending cases.

McClelland says the court will stop accepting case filings Monday because it cannot afford to reorder more paper. He told The Columbus Dispatch that the county still hasn’t paid the bill for basic supplies the court ordered in November.

McClelland says several county agencies have volunteered to provide paper to handle their own filings.

The Morrow County prosecutor declined to comment on the new filing rules.
