About this collection

This collection includes opinions issued by the Supreme Court dating back to January 1998, when the Judicial Department began publishing opinions on the internet. Per court order or department policy, some opinions have been modified for publication on the internet. Prior to 351 Or (2011-12), Oregon Reports included syllabi, synopses, and indexes copyrighted by West Group. That material has been redacted from opinions published in this collection. 

Court opinions are published here on the day of issue in a somewhat preliminary format.  When they are finalized for publication in the Advance Sheets (typically within a week of issue), preliminary versions are replaced with updated versions.  When a bound volume is published in hard print and available to the public, Advance Sheets version opinions are replaced with bound volume versions.

 

Search Tips

 

Searching by case number

The most precise way to locate a case is by the case number, e.g. S063292. Note that prior to 2008, the court did NOT use leading 0s in its case numbers, so if you are looking for a case from that period, there will only be five numbers following the S, e.g. S55002.

 

Searching by citation

You can use this database to search by citation, however, in order to get accurate results, you will need to use an "exact phrase" search. USING QUOTATION MARKS WILL NOT WORK IN THIS DATABASE. To do an exact phrase search, click the "Advanced Search" link to the right of the search bar. In the first box, change "All of the words" to "The exact phrase," then type the citation into the second box. If you are searching for a specific opinion, change the last box to "Citation"; if you are looking for any opinions that mention a specific citation, leave the last box setting as "All fields."
