Access to Clatsop, Columbia, and Tillamook Circuit Court Case Information Has Changed




A new electronic case management system (the Oregon eCourt Case Information system) is being installed in Clatsop, Columbia, and Tillamook circuit courts beginning Thursday, August 8, 2013 through Sunday, August 25, 2013.

During this time, Clatsop, Columbia, and Tillamook circuit court case information entered after August 7, 2013
will not be available at courthouse public access terminals, nor to online subscribers. Circuit Court case data for these courts entered during this time frame can be accessed by requesting it at the court clerk’s counter. Please check the local court website (http://courts.oregon.gov/OJD/courts/pages/index.aspx) for hours of operation, as public counter access hours may vary by courthouse location.

On Monday, August 26, 2013, all Clatsop, Columbia, and Tillamook circuit court case information can be accessed by the public at most public courthouse terminals, or by OJIN Online subscribers through the new Oregon eCourt Case Information system (OECI). Some Oregon circuit courts may not have public terminal access to the new system right away, but in that case, the public can request Clatsop, Columbia, and Tillamook circuit court case information at the court clerk’s counter.

During the installation of the new system, all Clatsop, Columbia, and Tillamook circuit court case information that was entered into the system before August 8, 2013, remains available and accessible to the public and OJIN subscribers through the Oregon Judicial Information Network (OJIN) and will remain available on that system through the end of September 2013.

After the end of September 2013, Clatsop, Columbia, and Tillamook circuit court data will no longer appear in OJIN and all their case data (past and present) will be accessed through the new OECI system. All other Oregon circuit courts who have not been converted to the new system will continue to provide public and OJIN subscriber access to case information through the OJIN system until they transition to the new system over the next several years.

Previous to Clatsop, Columbia, and Tillamook, five other circuit courts have converted to the OECI system: Yamhill, Crook, Jefferson, Linn, and Jackson. Two more courts, Benton and Polk circuit courts, are scheduled for implementation in January 2014. The remainder of Oregon’s circuit courts are being scheduled for implementation between 2014 and 2016. Public notice will be provided in advance of coming implementations.
