In an action for possession of a dwelling unit to which ORS chapter 90 applies:
(1) If the defendant raises a defense under ORS 90.449 based upon the defendantís status as a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking and the perpetrator is a tenant of the dwelling unit, the court may issue an order terminating the tenancy of the perpetrator and ordering the perpetrator to vacate the dwelling unit without terminating the tenancy of the other tenants and without awarding possession to the plaintiff.
(2) If the action is based upon a notice terminating the tenancy of a perpetrator under ORS 90.445, the court may issue an order upholding the termination of the perpetratorís tenancy and ordering the perpetrator to vacate the dwelling unit without the tenancy of the other tenants being terminated and without awarding possession to the plaintiff.
(3) If a court issues an order described in subsection (1) or (2) of this section, the court may enter judgment in favor of the plaintiff against the perpetrator. The plaintiff may enforce the judgment against the perpetrator as provided in ORS 105.151, but may not enforce the judgment against any other tenant of the dwelling unit. The sheriff shall remove only the perpetrator from the dwelling unit. The sheriff may not return possession of the dwelling unit to the plaintiff. [2007 c.508 §6]
