The following is a court ordered statement agreed upon by all parties in the Ashley Bellum et. al v. The City of Grants Pass case FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Grants Pass, OR — On April 22, 2002, the parties in Bellum v. Grants Pass, successfully mediated a resolution of the Spring/Summer 2002 field scheduling at the Grants Pass Riverside West All Sports Park. The mediation, which took place in Eugene, Oregon, was conducted with the assistance of United States Magistrate Judge Thomas M. Coffin. As well as resolving the plaintiffs’ pending motions for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction affecting the park’s spring and summer field scheduling, the parties agreed to promptly explore further mediation of the remaining issues in the case. At the conclusion of the mediation, Judge Coffin complimented the parties for their efforts in achieving this resolution for the 2002 season. Any further questions on this may be directed to the parties’ respective legal counsel.
