“There have been a number of out-of-cycle changes to the Uniform Trial Court Rules (UTCR) to facilitate implementation of the Oregon eCourt Program, increase the fee for a pro hac vice application, correct typographical errors, and correct inaccurate website addresses. You can view the changes at the Current Uniform Trial Court Rules webpage.
We encourage all interested parties to submit comment on these changes. The UTCR Committee will review the comments at the meeting scheduled for October 17, 2014. You can post a comment at the web address mentioned above; mail it to the UTCR Reporter at the Office of the State Court Administrator, Supreme Court Building, 1163 State Street, Salem, Oregon 97301-2563; or email it to email@example.com. Please submit your comments so that we receive them by 5:00 p.m., August 29, 2014.”
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).
