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.
