 Also in this month’s issue, the city of Oxford is filing a $2 million damages suit against an architect after ancient remains were unearthed at a construction site earlier this year. Also in the news, the Lake Oswego school district is experiencing more problems as one suit settles, another is filed against them by the contractor used to remedy structural deficiencies in their multi-million dollar gym.
