 Filings of Pleadings

An active member of the Oregon State Bar must file documents using the electronic filing system, instead of conventional filing, unless: 
Self-represented litigants may choose to electronically file their documents, or alternatively, may file them conventionally. Conventional filing is a process where a filer files the paper document with the court. Criminal pleadings may be filed at the Front Counter in Room 200, or may be mailed to the court.
