A: An Oregon attorney could answer best, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a general matter nationwide, some unified court systems display cases online. Some systems might require registration to use their resources. That would be if the matter was filed as a lawsuit with an index number. If the matter had been pursued out of suit as a claim, that could be more difficult. It could still be on databases, but ones to which the public does not have access. You could reach out to investigators (or some of the full service process service companies) to discuss further. Good luck
