Updates regarding the COVID-19 virus

Chief Justice Martha Walters has issued an amended CJO 20-006, which extends and modifies the original order issued on March 16. In addition, CJO 20-008 modifies the UTCR and expands e-signature authority, and CJO 20-010 authorizes suspension/waiver of collection fees. An OJD News Release summarizes the three CJO’s, and the Chief Justice has also asked us to share a new message to bar members.

The Chief Justice has also issued an emergency order, CJO 20-009, amending the OSB Rules of Admission and Rules of Procedure.

On March 23, Gov. Kate Brown ordered Oregonians to stay at home, closing specified businesses and requiring social distancing measures. The OSB Center will be closed to visitors and operating with reduced staff on site, with other staff working remotely. Although we are taking all steps possible to avoid business interruption, you may experience some delay or interruption due to reduced on-site staff. The best way to reach us will be through email. We appreciate your patience during this time.
