Oregon Statutes - Chapter 419A - Juvenile Code: General Provisions and Definitions - Section 419A.253 - When information in report or material considered by court must be identified in record.

(1) When, for the purpose of a hearing or proceeding that will result in the entry of an order or judgment, the juvenile court considers information in a report or other material described in ORS 419A.255 (2) and no party has offered the report or material as an exhibit or asked the court to take judicial notice of the information, the court shall identify on the record the report or material, or the part of the report or material, that the court has considered. Subject to the courtís ruling on objections by the parties, the court shall either take judicial notice of the information pursuant to ORS 40.060 to 40.085 or cause the report or material, or the part of the report or material, to be marked and received as an exhibit. The court shall cause a list to be made that reasonably identifies, by reference to its source, information judicially noticed under this subsection. The list may be included in the order or judgment or may be set out in a separate document attached to the order or judgment. If an appeal is taken from the order or judgment following the hearing or proceeding and the designation of record on appeal includes exhibits, the court or the trial court administrator shall cause the exhibits and any report or other materials containing judicially noticed information to be transmitted to the appellate court as part of the record on appeal.

(2) The list described in subsection (1) of this section is part of the record of the case maintained by the clerk of the court under ORS 419A.255 (1).

(3) Nothing in ORS 419A.255 limits access to any juvenile court records by an appellate court reviewing a juvenile court order or judgment. Appellate court rules may establish procedures for appellate court access to juvenile court records. [2005 c.451 §2]
