Notice: State Court Fee Changes Effective OCTOBER 1, 2013

Legislation enacted by the 2013 Legislative Assembly has increased the amount of certain fees that state courts are required to collect. The fees affected by Oregon Laws 2013, chapter 685, include a number of circuit court fees, as well as the filing fee in the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals, and the Tax Court.  These increases are effective October 1, 2013.

The current and the new statewide fee schedules (effective 10/1/2013) are posted on our webpage to provide attorneys and the public with advance notices of these changes.

Appellate Court Records Section

The Appellate Court Records Section (ACRS) serves as the case processing office for both the Oregon Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals, and manages the records of all cases on appeal to both courts.  As such, the ACRS processes appeals of various case types, including civil and criminal cases, lawyer and judicial disciplinary cases, Oregon Tax Court cases, cases of original Supreme Court jurisdiction, ballot measure titles, and judicial review of most state administrative actions.  The ACRS is responsible for processing all documents filed in those courts, calendaring all oral arguments, distributing opinions and issuing appellate judgments.

In July of 2009, in addition to the conventional method of receiving documents, the ACRS began receiving and processing case documents and filing fees via a new electronic filing (eFiling) system, and has been working with our eFiling customers to help ensure a smooth transition for all involved.  We believe this state of the art technology will help reduce the cost of processing cases for both the eFiling customers and for the court.

The ACRS is located on the first floor of the Supreme Court Building, one block east of the State Capitol in Salem.
