Consolidation Self-Test

Incorrect - the correct answer is (d)  The statute states that the assigned judges must confer and decide which is best. If they can't agree, then the judicial district where the first juvenile proceeding was filed

ORS 419B.806(7) states:

(7)  (a) When the actions described in subsection (2) of this section exist in two or more judicial districts, the judges assigned to the actions shall confer to determine the appropriate judicial district in which to consolidate and hear the actions. The judges shall confer not later than 10 judicial days after a court has received notice of the existence of an action in another judicial district.

        (b) If the judges agree on the judicial district in which the actions should be consolidated, the judges shall take such action as is necessary to consolidate the actions in the circuit court of that district.

        (c) If the judges do not agree on the judicial district in which the actions should be consolidated, the actions must be consolidated in the judicial district in which the juvenile action is filed or, if more than one juvenile action is pending, in the judicial district in which the first juvenile action was filed.
