State Court Fees

ORS 21.695
Waiver or deferral of costs of transcript on appeal


(1)

In a civil action or proceeding, the Supreme Court or the Court of Appeals may waive in whole or in part, defer in whole or in part, or partially waive and partially defer, the expense of preparing a transcript on appeal if:

(a)

The party requesting the transcript is unable to pay the expense of preparing the transcript; and

(b)

The party requesting the transcript makes a prima facie showing that the transcript is necessary to prosecute the appeal and would reveal reversible error in the action or proceeding.

(2)

If the Supreme Court or the Court of Appeals waives or defers any part of the expense of preparing a transcript on appeal, the court shall authorize preparation of only as much of the transcript as is necessary to prosecute the appeal. The State Court Administrator shall pay the unpaid costs of preparing the transcript out of funds appropriated for that purpose.

(3)

If the Supreme Court or the Court of Appeals defers payment of any part of the expense of preparing a transcript on appeal and any part of the deferred expense remains unpaid at the conclusion of the appeal, a judgment may be entered for the unpaid amount in the manner provided by ORS 21.692 (Judgment for deferred fees and court costs).

(4)

If the State Court Administrator pays any costs of preparing a transcript on appeal under subsection (2) of this section and costs on appeal are awarded to the obligor, a money award to the State Court Administrator shall be included in the judgment for all waived or deferred transcript costs paid by the State Court Administrator.

(5)

Waiver or deferral under this section of the transcript costs of an adult in custody, as defined in ORS 30.642 (Definitions for ORS 30.642 to 30.650), is subject to ORS 30.642 (Definitions for ORS 30.642 to 30.650) to 30.650 (Award of noneconomic damages). [2007 c.493 §6; 2019 c.213 §2]
