Oregon Statutes - Chapter 128 - Trusts; Charitable Activities - Section 128.710 - Enforcement; jurisdiction of court.

(1) The Attorney General may institute appropriate proceedings to secure compliance with ORS 128.610 to 128.750 and to invoke the jurisdiction of the court. Willful failure to comply with an order of any court having jurisdiction of charitable trusts requiring an accounting by a charitable corporation or trustee shall constitute grounds for removal of the officers of such charitable corporation or of such trustee and the appointment by the court of successor officers or trustee. The powers and duties of the Attorney General provided in ORS 128.610 to 128.750 are in addition to existing powers and duties.

(2) Nothing in ORS 128.610 to 128.750 shall impair or restrict the jurisdiction of any court with respect to any of the matters covered by it, except that no court shall have jurisdiction to modify or terminate any trust of property for charitable purposes unless the Attorney General is a party to the proceedings.
