Oregon Statutes - Chapter 115 - Claims; Actions and Suits - Section 115.070 - Claims on debts reduced to judgments.

If a judgment was entered on a claim prior to the death of the decedent, the claim shall be presented in the same manner as if no judgment had been entered, and a copy of the judgment shall be attached to the claim. Such a claim may be disallowed only if the judgment was void or voidable, or if the judgment could have been set aside on the date of the decedentís death, or if the claim is not presented within the time required by ORS 115.005. If the judgment was a lien against the property of the estate on the date of the decedentís death it shall be treated as a claim on a debt due for which the creditor holds security. In all other respects a claim which has been reduced to judgment shall have the same priority under ORS 115.125 as it would have had were it not reduced to judgment. [1989 c.229 §11]
