Statewide Court Closure October 15, 2021

          Oregon Judicial Department (OJD) intends to perform a significant upgrade to the circuit court case management system “Odyssey". This upgrade is extensive and will require the current Odyssey system to be offline for up to 96 hours. This is scheduled to occur Thursday, October 14th at 5:00 p.m. through Tuesday, October 19, at 4:00 a.m. As a result of this significant operational impact, the Circuit Court will be closed Friday, October 15, 2021, per Chief Justice Order 21-024.

          Systems impacted by this upgrade include: OJCIN (including document access), data shares and integrations, eCitations, ePayment, and public access to the case register. File and Serve will remain available, however, the courts will not be able to accept electronic filings and payments through file and serve until Odyssey is restored.


Landlord Tenant (Forcible Entry & Detainer) Proceedings

        Chief Justice Order No. 21-031 was released on August 19th, 2021 and became immediately effective. This order modified the statutory timing for first appearance and trials in a nonpayment of rent cases. The order will remain in effect 60 days after declaration of the state of emergency has ended. 

         The Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program has local agencies assisting with this program. In Jackson County, the local non-profit Access, is assisting the public with applications and information. They can be reached at the above link or at 541-779-6691.

         Additional information on recent changes in landlord tenant law can be found on the Oregon State Bar website, including an informative video on law changes and the rental assistance program (note: Senate Bill 278 mentioned in the video did get voted into law).

Welcome to the Jackson County Circuit Court.  Jackson County, the 6th most populous county in Oregon, is home to more than 200,000 residents. Most residents live in one of the 11 incorporated cities found in the temperate valleys bordering the Rogue River or one of its major tributaries, Bear Creek. Outside city limits, residents enjoy limitless recreational opportunities in the forests, mountains, rivers and lakes interwoven across the landscape. Hundreds of thousands of visitors come every year to enjoy both the landscape and the many cultural opportunities found within Jackson County. Since its founding in 1852, Jackson County has remained a major producer of natural resources and agriculture, including more than 2,000 acres of wine grapes for over 100 different wineries. As the county has grown, it has also become a regional center for healthcare, manufacturing, tourism, and the arts.
