Appellate Court Services Division

The Appellate Court Services Division processes appellate court cases, oversees the State of Oregon Law Library, publishes appellate court decisions and other publications, manages state court facilities and archives, and purchases office supplies. It has six (6) sections:

  • The Appellate Court Records Section processes all documents filed with the Supreme Court or the Court of Appeals, including petitions, appeals, motions, briefs, notices, and correspondence.
  • The State of Oregon Law Library is the legal research center for the Oregon appellate courts, Tax Court, and many executive branch agencies and citizens. It is a free, public library.
  • The Publications Section publishes the decisions of the appellate courts and provides low-cost desktop publishing services to the state court system. This section is self-sustaining and receives no General Fund support.
  • The State Court Service Center operates the state court system's archive and records management center and purchases specialized office supplies for the state court system. It aggressively surveys the market for the best prices, consolidates the purchasing needs of all state courts, and negotiates cost-effective purchase agreements for office supplies.
  • The Administration Section manages all facilities that the state court system owns or leases, including Supreme Court Building, and is liaison to state trial courts, which occupy county-owned courthouses.
  • The Building Services Section is responsible for cleaning and maintaining the Supreme Court Building.
