There are currently two computer systems used by Oregon trial courts:
- The older Oregon Judicial Information Network (OJIN) and
- the new eCourt Case information system.
The Oregon court system is in the middle of a transition from OJIN to eCourt. In order to find case information you should first identify which Oregon county court your case is in. You can then check the current list of counties that have switched to eCourt.
Useful information for locating a trial court case includes:
- The county where your case was filed
- The date the case was filed
- The names of any of the parties in the case
- The names of any of the attorneys in a case
- What type of case it was, for example Criminal, Traffic, Civil, Family or Probate
- The citation or ticket number in the case
Once you have gathered as much of the above information as possible you can search the OJIN and eCourt systems. Public access to both OJIN and eCourt is through a paid subscription. However you can access the appropriate system from your local courthouse.
