    TO BE REPORTED TO THE MEMBERSHIP MAY 10TH, 2020

    COVID-19 and the EH Sparks Trial Decision As of May 9th, 2020

    Reported March 25th, 2020:

    In early March Judge Hillman sent a letter to counsel stating that a decision would be provided by March 23rd. That date has come and gone. Because of
    COVID-19 Oregon’s Chief Justice Walters this month issued a two-week home rotation directive to Circuit Court Judges including Jefferson and Crook counties.
    The rotation leaves one judge in Crook and one in Jefferson County. That left Judge Hillman handling Jefferson county. Judge McClain was the first judge to stay
    at home for two weeks. Depending on the next judge to go on rotation, if Hillman, we should have a decision in two weeks. If not, then decision in a month. A new
    letter to Judge Hillman during this crisis would not be well received. An update will be provided when available.

    All updates will be provided to the TR’s Office and on the TR’s website.

    Reported April 19th, 2020:

    The Association has still not received a decision from Judge Hillman regarding the EH Sparks Trial. The Board will re-evaluate this matter if a decision
    is not received by the May 9th Board of Directors meeting. All updates will be provided to the TR’s Office and on the TR’s website.

    Reported May 9th, 2020:

    Association counsel sent a letter on May 1st to Judge Hillman regarding the EH Sparks Trial. The Judge responded on May 4th. In her response she stated her
    opinion letter would be submitted to all parties, “on May 18th, if not sooner.”

    All updates will be provided to the TR’s Office and on the TR’s website.
