Small Claims Court Shutting Down

Recommended Posts

FYI. I just heard from a reliable legal source that because of a recently failed tax measure, all the small claims courts in Oregon are getting shut down soon due to lack of funding. That means there will be no venue for small claims.

That happened in my state last fall. The only trials scheduled were criminal cases. It took about a month before funding was avaialble to support the entire court system.

This is my first post, so I'll say hi to everyone. bw444 I took my handle "Widget" from one of your posts, it pretty much describes how I feel when dealing with a CA LOL, hope you don't mind. :-)

Shutting down Oregon Small Claims courts will be the pitts for those needing to sue CA's for small violations, but will it also put a damper on CA's suing debtors for small amounts if they have to now sue in a higher court which will cost them more? Is there a positive side to this? Will they be less apt to sue do you think?
