Notes of Decisions

This section does not toll statute of limitations for debtor during pendency of bankruptcy case. R.A. Hatch Co. v. American Ins. Co., 728 F. Supp. 1499 (D. Or. 1990)

Chapter 12

Notes of Decisions

An action for personal injuries caused by breach of implied warranty is clearly one for which "different limitation is prescribed by statute" under ORS 12.010 and thus is not governed by provisions of this chapter. Redfield v. Mead, Johnson & Co., 266 Or 273, 512 P2d 776 (1973)
