Oregon Statutes - Chapter 192 - Records; Public Reports and Meetings - Section 192.848 - When Attorney General may disclose actual address or telephone number.

(1) The Attorney General may not disclose the actual address or telephone number of a program participant, except under either of the following circumstances:

(a) Upon receipt of a court order signed by a judge pursuant to a finding of good cause. Good cause exists when disclosure is sought for a lawful purpose that outweighs the risk of the disclosure and, in the case of a request for disclosure received from a federal, state or local law enforcement agency, district attorney or other public body, when information is provided to the court that describes the official purpose for which the actual address or telephone number of the program participant will be used. If a judge finds that good cause exists, the terms of the court order shall address, as much as practicable, the safety and protection of the program participant. In cases where the Attorney General has not received prior notice of a court order, not later than three business days after receiving the order, the Attorney General may object to the order and request a hearing before the judge who signed the order.

(b) Where the program participant is required to disclose the actual address of the program participant as part of a registration for sex offenders as required under ORS 181.598 and 181.599.

(2) A person to whom an actual address or telephone number of a program participant has been disclosed pursuant to a court order may not disclose the actual address or telephone number to any other person unless permitted to do so by order of the court.

(3) The Attorney General shall notify a program participant within one business day after the Attorney General discloses an actual address under subsection (1)(a) of this section.

(4) Upon request by a public body, the Attorney General may verify whether or not a person is a program participant when the verification is for official use only. [2005 c.821 §10; 2007 c.542 §4]
