Odyssey File & Serve Operational
Limits in Some Case Types

Odyssey File & Serve is operational, but with some limitations. It was down due to a software configuration problem which required immediate correction. This issue has been corrected with a temporary fix which has some side effect for some users. As you may be aware, the ability to efile subsequent documents into some case types is restricted. In addition, a small number of the users, about 2,500, will not be able to view in OECI case information in those same listed case types for which they had access prior to this September 26 shut-down of File & Serve. The case types affected in both of these situations are set out in the OJD message below,
The Oregon Judicial Department is working to resolve both of these issues, but we do not have a final time table for resolution.

Multnomah County was created on December 22, 1854. The county was named after the Multnomah Indians who were part of the Chinookan tribe that lived on the eastern tip of what is now Sauvie Island in the Columbia River. The first courthouse was built in 1866. Expanding county business required the addition of a north wing in 1885 and a south wing in 1889. In 1914 a new courthouse was completed.

The 1981 Legislative Assembly joined, county funded, Oregon's district and circuit courts into a unified state-funded court system. Effective January 1, 1983, the courts operate under the constitutional authority of the Oregon Judicial Department (OJD). Effective January 15, 1998, the legislature abolished the district courts, merged their judges and jurisdiction with the circuit courts to form a single, unified trial court level. Municipal, justice and county courts continue as limited jurisdiction tribunals outside of the state-funded court system and are not subject to its administrative control and oversight. There are 27 judicial districts, composed of one or more counties.
