The Council on Court Procedures is changing internet hosts, but the domain and the content remain (essentially) the same, with invaluable information on the Oregon Rules of Civil Procedure. There will be some adjustments, and you may need to fix your links, as the migration progresses, but time heals all wobbles, or maybe that’s wobbles all heels.

Nope. The ORCP is updated biennially so the 2013 edition online at the Legislature’s Court Rules website is the current one.

The next ORCP will be the 2015 edition of the ORS (Oregon Revised Statutes), which will appear online in early 2016 (after the 2015 Oregon Legislative session). Sometimes there are “out of cycle” amendments, but they are rare. (See previous blog post on the subject: Out of Cycle Changes to Court Rules.)

The authority on all of this is the Council on Court Procedures. You can read the current ORCP at their website and also track proposed amendments.

I have about 150 draft blog posts and no time to prep them for viewing, but some info just has to rise to the top:

Historical ORS

A(nother) frustrated librarian has created this quick and dirty website to superseded ORS, Historical ORS, which can supplement the info on our Where are Superseded (Archived) Oregon Revised Statutes?

Many, many years ago (2006!) I challenged readers of this OLR blog with a question AND promised to post an answer: “Do any and all of these rules allow for “out of cycle” amendments: UTCR, SLR, ORCP, and ORAP?” I can’t find a 2006 blog post that would have answered the question so here is my “I’m still learning” answer and corrections are welcome:

UTCR (August 1st) — Qualified. See UTCR 1.050(1)(c).

SLR (February 1st) — Qualified. See ORS 3.220(2)(b).

This is a follow-up to my previous post about researching the history of an ORCP rule. (And thank you again to the staff at the Oregon Council on Court Procedures!)

Rules of civil procedure are promulgated in December of even-numbered years, submitted to the legislature at the beginning of the (odd-numbered year) legislative session, and become effective January 1 of the following EVEN-NUMBERED year. So the rules that we promulgate at our December 11, 2010, meeting will be looked at by the legislature in 2011 and will become effective January 1, 2012.

Statutory authority of the Council is found in ORS 1.735.”
