Correction to Allred story
In today’s earlier news release by the Oregon Department of Human Services on the Allred mediation, headlined “Agreement reached in Gabriel Allred adoption case,” DHS erroneously reported the name of the mediator. The excellent mediation services in this matter were provided by Judge Paul Lipscomb, presiding judge of the Marion County Circuit Court.
Judge Lipscomb’s participation was arranged by Judge Robert Huckleberry of the Lincoln County Circuit Court. Judge Lipscomb met with the parties on Tuesday, participated in the visit to Gabriel at the Brandt home, and organized and mediated the negotiations on Wednesday, Dec. 13.
Judge Lipscomb has earned an excellent reputation in legal circles for his skills in mediation. These skills were put to the test Wednesday and passed.
