Need help with Discovery process in Oregon

Recommended Posts

Had a Hearing-Pre-Trial Conference today, my case is Midland Funding,LLC vs Flash Gordon in Jefferson County, Oregon. And the judge placed it in the mandatory Arbitration, I OBJECTED to Arbitration, I told the judge I wanted to go to court, before a judge he stated I would have to file a motion for that, I OBJECTED to the lawyer calling in Telephonicly in, if I had to be there so do they. it all fell on deaf ears so on to the next step, from what I understand is discovery process, how dose one go about asking for discovery can you just send the request to the lawyers do you have to file it with the courts and send a copy to the lawyers?? I just can't find this information clearly to explain it for me any help would greatly be appreciated.

I think you might still have a chance to file an MTC private arb if you will get on it. Read the thread by huey Pilot at the bottom of my sig line here.

Thank You, TomnTex. I read the thread from huey pilot, very helpful, same lawfirm but the questions in the summons - complaint were a little different than hers. And thanxs for pointing out filing for a "MTC private arb" i  was thinking of filing a Motion objecting the arbitration and asking for having my case heard in a court. So this gives me another option i need to look at. Still trying to wrap my head around the pre-trial hearing, it didn't go well.

For that amount if you can get private arb it may scare them off in time as it will cost them more than that to fight it.
