I did a trial by declaration for a traffic citation in 2022 based off the court rules I was under the impression and was told if I was found guilty I would receive the notice by us mail no later then 2 weeks.

Courts process a lot of traffic tickets, but no need to treat defendants gruffly. Obviously, you have stepped afoul of the Court rules regarding processing your ticket. Today most traffic tickets carry with them penalty assessments and court fees so a fine of $100 can easily reach $500. Courts... Read more »

Assuming you are clothed during these videos and are not otherwise involved in illegal activities, they are legal. Your mother is within her rights to record a conversation between the two of you. Oregon law is more murky as to whether she can record you when she is not part of the conversation.... Read more »

Possibly. You need to get in your tort claim notice within 180 days of the appellate ruling that the conviction was reversed to preserve your claim. The case would need a full review with details to determine if there is a case. If the 180 days passes, your state law claims will be barred due... Read more »

Normally one needs considerably more information before being able to tell you anything. But assuming you are referring to a criminal prosecution, who is it you think you can successfully sue? It sounds as if you were prosecuted for some crime, went to trial and won. If essentially accurate, that... Read more »

Both. You need to get in tort claim notice within 180 days. You need a civil attorney to assist you.

You did not state whether or not when you asked for additional time if you gave your landlord a letter from doctor along with your request for reasonable accommodation. If you did not, you should contact your doctor for a letter to give to your landlord. If you did give a letter to your landlord,... Read more »

answered on Sep 1, 2021
When you say you opened it together, if you co-signed the rental agreement, the storage facility should have no problem allowing you access as long as your rent is paid to date. If you are not on the rental agreement, then your daughter will have to access the unit or possibly the storage facility... Read more »

I'm just wanting to be certain that this precedent has not been overturned, and if it has, by what case(s)?

I appreciate your question. My research of the case, reveals that Rogers v. Saylor, 306 Or. 267 (1988) has not been overruled or negatively treated on appeal, even though it has been cited in 37 subsequent cases.
The case discusses the the limitations on individual or governmental liability... Read more »

An Oregon attorney could advise best, but you await a response for three weeks. Do you mean an EVICTION notice? Read it more carefully. If that's the case, repost this under Landlord-Tenant law and hopefully an experienced L-T attorney could offer meaningful guidance. Good luck
