Oregon eCourt Case Information 

 

Oregon eCourt Case Information FAQs 

What is Oregon eCourt Case Information?
Oregon eCourt Case Information is the new Oregon eCourt information system used to access Circuit & Tax Court data online.
 
What is OJCIN OnLine?
OJCIN OnLine is the official website of Register of Actions and judgment records for the State of Oregon Judicial Department. OJCIN OnLine allows access to both case management systems in place for the Oregon Courts: OECI (Oregon eCourt Case Information Network) and ACMS (the Appellate Court Case Management System). It allows you to search for civil, small claims, tax, domestic, and criminal (including misdemeanor and felony) cases. Some cases are confidential and protected statutorily and therefore not available to the public.
 
Users with a paid subscription to OJCIN OnLine can access case information from any computer. 
 
Currently, members of the general public can access case information if the circuit court in their county provides public access computer terminals or kiosks for public use at the courthouse. If your court does not have public access computers, you may obtain case information at the court clerk's counter.
 
Is my password the same for Oregon eCourt Case Information and ACMS?
You will be provided with two temporary passwords (one for each system). You will be required to change each of these passwords on your first login and can make them the same at that time.

  1. The electronic notices will only be sent to the attorney email address on file with the Oregon State Bar (OSB) –  please be sure your email address with the OSB is kept up to date.
  2. Attorneys should make sure that their email program’s security settings will allow links from the five following court email addresses to come through:
