COURT GIVES EXTENSION IN CASE AGAINST COUNTY

By T.L. Petersen

Observer Staff Writer

A pretrial period of discovery has been extended in the case of Deloris Pooley versus Union County, its sheriff and undersheriff.

Pooley, a former Union County part-time jail cook and corrections deputy, filed a multi-million dollar civil lawsuit against the county, Sheriff Steve Oliver and Undersheriff Dana Wright in U.S. District Court in mid-March. The lawsuit alleges discrimination based on Pooley being a victim of domestic violence, discrimination based on her gender, that she was wrongfully discharged, the intentional infliction of emotional distress, and other charges.

Originally, the court set a discovery period lasting until July 11. Discovery has been extended until Nov. 8, a court clerk said Tuesday.

Discovery is a time set by the court for the sides involved in a legal matter to gain access to information about the case from the other side.

In the Pooley matter, Union County District Attorney Russ West has called on another attorney to represent the county and its officers.

Pooley is being represented by the law firm of McKanna Bishop Joffee of Portland along with Legal Aid Services of Oregon in Portland and Pendleton.

According to U.S. District Court records, no other legal motions had been filed in the case as of Tuesday.
