On December 15, 2015, the Oregon Supreme Court issued an opinion on the confidentiality of statements made prior to the actual mediation. This opinion may have far reaching effects in the area of confidentiality and mediation. The effects are to be most strongly felt in states that have not adopted the Uniform Mediation Act.
