Usually yes. Depending on the jurisidiction the plaintiff might need to obtain leave of court before filing it. Not sure what the rule is in Ohio state court since I am not licensed in Ohio. If you are in federal court typically the plaintiff would need leave of court. But in federal court there is usually a deadline provided by which amended pleadings must be filed and as long as the plaintiff moves to amend by that deadline leave is routinely granted.
