Judge reverses key ruling in $1.4 billion timber class action

In his most recent June 20 decision, Murphy has agreed with Oregon’s attorneys that counties cannot sue the state government for money.

A judge has ruled that counties can’t sue the state for financial damages, potentially undermining a $1.4 billion class action lawsuit over state logging practices.

Linn County Circuit Court Judge Daniel Murphy has reversed an earlier ruling in the case, which held that Oregon’s sovereign immunity doesn’t bar counties from seeking such damages.
