The views of Oregon’s appellate courts on key issues of security negligence liability in the workplace, public schools and the issue of the government’s discretionary immunity as employed by local law enforcement will be examined. Finally, current trends in prosecuting and defending cases that allege negligent security across the U.S. will be discussed.

Fact Investigation in Personal Injury Cases
Wednesday, July 19, 1-4 p.m.
Oregon State Bar Center, Lake Oswego
3 general CLE credits

In many cases, investigation of the facts before discovery is the single most important part of achieving a good result. Well-planned client and witness interviews, as well as utilizing sources of evidence that are often overlooked, can save plaintiffs and their counsel the considerable expenses associated with a case that turns out to be a dead end. Skilled investigation can save defendants the cost of defending a case that should have been resolved early, and it enables both sides to give their clients accurate evaluations. This half-day presentation will reinforce fundamentals and discuss new developments.
