  • FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio man is finding out there’s no easy way to come back from the dead.

    Donald Miller Jr. went to court this week to ask a county judge to reverse a 1994 ruling that declared him legally dead after he had disappeared from his home eight years earlier. But the judge turned down his request, citing a three-year time limit for changing a death ruling.

    Hancock County Probate Court Judge Allan Davis called it a “strange, strange situation.”

    “We’ve got the obvious here. A man sitting in the courtroom, he appears to be in good health,” said Davis, who told Miller the three-year limit was clear.

    “I don’t know where that leaves you, but you’re still deceased as far as the law is concerned,” the judge said.

    Miller resurfaced about eight years ago and went to court so that he could get a driver’s license and reinstate his Social Security number.
