News and Media Releases


The Court of Appeals issues most opinions on Wednesday morning. The Supreme Court issues its opinions usually once a week, frequently on Thursday morning. These two courts often post Forthcoming decisions alerts the day before a decision is issued. The State of Oregon Law Library Twitter and Facebook accounts routinely post appellate and Tax Court opinions.
The Oregon Appellate Courts home page has links to Supreme Court and Court of Appeals calendars, opinions (forthcoming, latest, and past), media releases (brief summaries of opinions issued), judge and justice bios, webcasting links (for the Supreme Court), and other information. 
In addition to the “media releases” noted above, you will also find “news releases” on this page that cover other court news
