Online Option For Jackson County Courts

MEDFORD, Ore. — Jackson County Courts are preparing for a sweeping systems upgrade later this month. It’s part of a statewide initiative to get all court records and documents filed electronically.

Jackson will be the 5th county in the state to switch to the new online system, known as Oregon E-Court. The Judicial Department claims this will allow court staff to access files more easily and securely.

Bob Kleker with Jackson Circuit Court says this will eventually save a good deal of time and potentially money, but there will be a transition period. The switch will officially be made on March 11th.

    Hope the public can get some access to follow up on the prosecution of the crook, for example, who stole from me, assaulted a friend, etc. A $300 signup fee is now required to find out what’s going on in a public court.
    Not to worry. If you don’t have the $$ & monthly fees, you can lose time from work to go to the courthouse and look it up for “free”.
    As it is now, the following quote applies to an on-line search of court cases which are publicly open court cases:

    “Unfortunately, court calendars will be of little help to most people. Court case lookups are not available online unless a subscription to OJIN is purchases from the state. This has a $295 non-refundable sign up fee, usage fees and monthly minimum. However, free lookups of OJIN can be made at most courthouses.”
