Female inmates confined in the Washington County Jail in Hillsboro, Oregon, filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon against the county under 42 U.S.C. §1983 requesting that the county provide them with adequate and private space in which they could confer with their attorneys at the jail. The District Court (Magistrate Judge Michael R. Hogan) entered a consent decree on June 16, 1986, requiring the county to make private and confidential space within the jail available to female inmates to have attorney-inmate conferences.

The docket in this case was not available from PACER. All the information on the case that we have gathered is from a reported opinion in the related case Steinke v. Washington County (JC-OR-003) (regarding criminal defense attorneys' right to confidential interviews with their clients, inmates at the Washington County Jail). Steinke v. Washington County, 857 F.Supp. 55 (D.Or. 1994).
