On August 3, 2015, the Oregon Judicial Department began an exterior rehabilitation project on the Supreme Court Building to address public safety and building preservation issues.The project has now reached substantial completion status. The need for some additional repairs to the southwest corner of the building was discovered, which involves ordering additional terra cotta tiles. As the lead time for the terra cotta tiles is quite lengthy, the additional repair work is expected to take place in June 2016. Only a small section of the scaffolding remains along the southwest corner of the building. See progress photos of the project.

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.

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