ORS 433.466
Right to legal counsel by persons subject to public health measure


(1)

A person or group of persons subject to isolation or quarantine or other public health measure pursuant to ORS 433.121 (Emergency administrative order for isolation or quarantine) or 433.123 (Petition for court order for isolation or quarantine) has the right to be represented by legal counsel if the person or group of persons so elects. If the person or group of persons requests legal counsel and cannot afford counsel, the court shall appoint legal counsel. If no request for legal counsel is made, the court must appoint legal counsel unless counsel is expressly, knowingly and intelligently refused by the person or the group of persons. The person or the group of persons may request legal counsel at any time during the period of imposition of the isolation, quarantine or other public health measure.

(2)

If a person is unable to afford legal counsel, the public defense services executive director shall determine and pay, as provided in ORS 135.055 (Compensation and expenses of appointed counsel), the reasonable expenses of the person and compensation for legal counsel appointed to represent the person.
