Requesting Reasonable Protective Measures in the Courtroom
Clackamas County is committed to maintaining access to services while keeping jurors, litigants, staff, and the public and others safe at the courthouse. Jurors perform a vital role in our American system of justice. Jury service is an important civic function that supports one of the fundamental rights of citizens - the right to have their cases decided by a jury of their peers. The right to a speedy trial is important for every single Oregon citizen accused of a crime, even when in the midst of a pandemic. We have a process where participants (including jurors) may seek to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 by
requesting that reasonable protective measures be taken during any court proceeding. If you would like to make a request, upon entry into the courtroom,
let the judge or their staff know as soon as you enter the courtroom if you are requesting reasonable protective measures be taken.
