Civil Consensus Statement

Periodically, the Circuit Court Judges assigned to civil cases in Josephine County will confer regarding their prior rulings on motions in civil cases. These judges have developed a consensus statement on particular issues that regularly come up in motions made in civil cases.
This consensus statement does not have the force of statute or court rule, and the statements are not binding on any judge, but are a good indication of how judges handling civil cases will rule on similar issues. The following is not a predetermination of any question presented on the merits to a judge in a particular action. The statement may be of assistance in guiding practitioners as to anticipated rulings on a specific question and may eliminate the time and expense of presenting the issues to the court.
