Welcome to the U.S. District Court
for the District of Oregon

The District covers the State of Oregon, with courthouses in Portland, Eugene, Medford, and Pendleton. The Court handles an average annual civil caseload of 2,400 pending civil cases, and a criminal caseload involving an average of 1,100 defendants per year. In addition, the Court is home to Reentry Court programs in Eugene and Portland.

We believe that there are many routes to justice, and our goal is to map them all. Whether we are trying cases, facilitating alternative resolutions to disputes, or collaborating with Federal, state and local government services to craft a comprehensive solution to a District-wide problem, our role as a Court is to provide equal and consistent access to justice.

Information on our website is loosely organized into the types of people who arrive at court; we have sections for attorneys, jurors, educators, and the community at large.
