Filings of Pleadings
An active member of the Oregon State Bar must file documents using the electronic filing system, instead of conventional filing, unless:
- The document is required to be conventionally filed under UTCR 21.070(3); or
- The filer has obtained a waiver under UTCR 21.140(2); or
- The document is required to be conventionally filed under SLR 2.501.
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.
