Access to Crook, Jefferson, and Linn County Circuit Court Case Information Has Changed!

A new electronic case management system (the Oregon eCourt Case Information System) is being installed in Crook, Jefferson, and Linn County Circuit Courts beginning Thursday, December 6, 2012 through Sunday, December 23, 2012.

During this time, Crook, Jefferson, and Linn County Circuit Court case information entered after December 5, 2012
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, December 24, 2012, all Crook, Jefferson, and Linn County 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. Some Oregon circuit courts may not have public terminal access to the new system right away, but in that case, the public can request Crook, Jefferson, and Linn County Circuit Court case information at the court clerk’s counter.

During the installation of the new system, all Crook, Jefferson, and Linn County Circuit Court case information that was entered into the system before December 6, 2012, 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 January, 2013.

After the end of January 2013, Crook, Jefferson, and Linn data will no longer appear in OJIN and all their case data (past and present) will be accessed through the new Oregon eCourt Case Information System. All other Oregon county 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.

At this time Jackson County Circuit Court is scheduled for implementation in March 2013. The remainder of Oregon’s circuit courts are being scheduled for implementation between 2013 and 2016. Public notice will be provided in advance of other implementations.
