ORS 36.234¹
Parties to mediation

For the purposes of ORS 36.220 (Confidentiality of mediation communications and agreements) to 36.238 (Application of ORS 36.210 and 36.220 to 36.238), a person, state agency or other public body is a party to a mediation if the person or public body participates in a mediation and has a direct interest in the controversy that is the subject of the mediation. A person or public body is not a party to a mediation solely because the person or public body is conducting the mediation, is making the mediation available or is serving as an information resource at the mediation. [1997 c.670 §7]
