Oregon Court of Appeals
The Oregon Court of Appeals is the intermediate appellate court in Oregon. Except for death penalty cases, which are reserved for the Oregon Supreme Court, and tax court cases, it has jurisdiction to hear all civil and criminal appeals from Oregon circuit courts, and to review actions of most state administrative agencies. The ten judges of the court are chosen by the people in statewide non-partisan elections to six-year terms, and have as their administrative head a chief judge appointed from their number by the chief justice of the Oregon Supreme Court.
Appeals court decisions are subject to a petition by an aggrieved party for review by the Oregon Supreme Court. The petition must be made within 35 days of the decision, and the Oregon Supreme Court determines by vote of the justices whether to review the case.
