Construction Defect Cases
- Navigating the Procedural and Cultural Differences Between Local Counties
Date: Tuesday, May 14th 2013
Location: World Trade Center Sky Bridge Room, Building 2, 26 SW Salmon, Portland
Each county handles construction defect cases differently. This two-hour CLE will provide some insight into how Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington and Marion Counties approach construction defect cases. This class is intended to be different than the usual day-long seminars in that judges from these counties will be discussing: (1) current practices in their respective counties in handling dispositive motions, pretrial matters and trials; (2) hot topics that each judge has seen come up recently impacting these cases; and (3) words to the wise - what works and what doesn't from a judge's perspective.
Our speakers include: Judge Judith Matarazzo (Multnomah), Judge Mary James (Marion), Judge Charles Bailey (Washington) and Judge Douglas Van Dyk (Clackamas). The panel will be moderated by Melissa Ward, Spooner & Much, PC.
This class will be followed by a networking reception in the
foyer. Refreshments will be served and attendees will have the opportunity to
visit with the panel members.
