Oregon Small Claims Court Limit Rises to $7,500 in 2008

By

Reminder: On January 1, 2008, the Oregon Small Claims limit rises to $7,500 (from $5,000). See my previous posting.

The 2007 Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS) laws on Small Claims courts (both Justice Court and Circuit Court) will be available at the Legislature’s web page soon.

County Circuit Courts manage their own Small Claims Departments so you should contact the court where you will be filing your case and ask about local procedures and forms. Not every county has a Justice Court, but each county has a Circuit Court (36 counties are served by 27 judicial districts)
