The Civil Justice Committee is a standing committee of the Ohio State Senate.

Per the Senate Rules, committees of the Ohio State Senate are appointed by the President of the Senate. The rules do not give a specific date to which committees are assigned but committee appointments occur after the organization of the Senate.[1] The President shall appoint a chair and vice-chair of each standing committee as well as a ranking minority member.[2] The Minority Leader can recommend minority membership and a ranking minority member for each committee.[1] The President can be substituted as a voting member on any standing committee. The Minority Leader shall be an ex-officio nonvoting member of each committee, and at the Minority Leader's request, the President can substitute for the Minority Leader as a voting member on any committee.[2] A majority of members in a committee is considered quorum.[3]
