Update: In case you haven’t heard (anyone?), the Oregon Courts will remain open on Fridays, except for Friday, March 13th, 2009. Stories about this are at all news outlets, radio, TV, newspaper, and online.
See the Legislature’s press release about this good news.
This good news also means regular access to county law libraries located in courthouses. Those of us not located in courthouses had planned to stay open despite the other closings.
(The “bad” news is that when the courthouses were to be closed on Fridays we were going to host at my Law Library marriages performed by our judges. Now they all will be back at the Courthouse, instead of our having the pleasure of being visited by happy people!)
