Settlement conferences in civil cases

July 2008
By Hon. John A. Wittmayer, Multnomah County Circuit Court

In addition to the many fine mediators, lawyers and retired judges, the following judges are available to conduct settlement conferences in your civil cases: Marshall Amiton, Frank Bearden, Eric Bloch, Stephen Bushong, Kathleen Dailey, Jerry Hodson, Dale Koch, Jerome LaBarre, Kristena LaMar, Marilyn Litzenberger, Michael Marcus, Christopher Marshall, Judith Matarazzo, Adrienne Nelson, Leslie Roberts and Youlee You. To schedule a settlement conference, contact the judge's office directly. Except for Judge LaMar's full-time work with settlement conferences, most of these are scheduled for Fridays, when the court generally does not conduct jury trials.
