Survivor of Vicious Attack Outside Autzen Stadium Sues Washington County

Yesterday Johnson Johnson & Schaller filed a federal lawsuit against Washington County arising from the brutal rape and assault of our client, Heather Meeler.  She was attacked after a U of O football game by a Jaime Tinoco, who Washington County had brought to Eugene as part of a program for troubled teens.  Washington County should never have brought him on the trip, but even more amazing, once here he disappeared from their custody and they did not even know he was missing until they stopped the bus for a meal  on the way home.  The story has garnered a lot of media attention – even more after the perpetrator confessed to a murder after he was arrested for the crimes he committed against our client. Derek Johnson and Jennifer Middleton are the primary attorneys in the case. To read more about this lawsuit, […]

Oregon Supreme Court Issues Landmark Consumer Safety Decision

In a landmark decision for consumer safety, the Oregon Supreme Court decided today that ski areas cannot escape responsibility for their own negligence when their wrongful conduct harms skiers.  Our client, eighteen year old Myles Bagley, was seriously injured while snowboarding over a jump at Mt. Bachelor. He filed an action and alleged that the jump was defective, but the ski area claimed that because he signed a release, they were not responsible for his injuries. The trial court upheld the release, as did the Court of Appeals. Relying on well established common law principles, in Bagley v. Mt. Bachelor, Inc., the Supreme Court held that the release was unconscionable and against public policy. The court stated, “It is axiomatic that public policy favors the deterrence of negligent conduct. * * * Skiers and snowboarders have important legal inducements to exercise reasonable care for […]
