Oregon Expedited Civil Jury Trial Program

On May 6, 2010, Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Paul J. De Muniz signed an order implementing an expedited civil jury trial program in selected Oregon Circuit Courts. The goal of this program is to provide speedy and economical disposition of civil cases and to increase the use of jury trials to decide civil cases.

Multnomah County is now offering this expedited track for civil jury trials. Parties may opt in to this track. The process includes an initial case management conference with trial counsel no later than 10 days after the case is designated as appropriate for this track. At the initial conference the court will set a firm trial date which will be no later than four months from the date of the designation order.
