On Tuesday, October 11th, Thom Brown spoke at a CLE hosted by the Oregon State Bar and cosponsored by the Alternative Dispute Resolution Section.  Thom’s presentation covered two recent Oregon Supreme Court decisions addressing Oregon’s mediation confidentiality statutes, the impact of those decisions on a client’s later claim for mediation-based malpractice against an attorney, the ethical implications of the decisions for attorneys proposing mediation to a client, and whether changes should be made to Oregon’s mediation confidentiality statutes in light of the decisions.
