OAR 859-300-0100
Quorum and Decisions of Panel


The presence of at least three members of the same Panel constitutes a quorum. Members of both the Juvenile Panel and the Adult Panel may serve as the Gun Relief Panel. Three concurring votes (affirmative or negative) are required to make a Panel decision. When three members cannot agree on the decision, the hearing shall be continued for no longer than 60 days and the recording of the hearing and the exhibits shall be reviewed by the remaining Panel member(s) and a decision by the majority of the members shall be the finding and order of the Panel.


At the outset of each relief hearing, the Panel members shall select one member to be the presiding officer of the relief hearing. The relief hearing shall be conducted by and under the control of the presiding officer. The presiding officer shall designate the order of presentation and questioning, determine the scope of questioning, and may set time limits and terminate irrelevant questions and irrelevant or unresponsive answers. The officer presiding at the hearing shall ensure that the record developed at the hearing shows a full and fair inquiry into the facts necessary for consideration of all issues properly before the presiding officer in the case and the correct application of the law to those facts. The presiding officer also may limit repetitious and cumulative evidence.
