2011 ORS § 294.025¹
Effect of wrongful payment
  • liability of officer

When any warrant is paid, other than as authorized by ORS 294.005 (Definitions for ORS 294.005 to 294.025) to 294.025 (Effect of wrongful payment), such wrongful payment does not relieve the political body issuing the warrant from liability to the true and lawful owner thereof. However, the officer or person making such wrongful payment and the sureties on the official bond of the officer or person, if any, shall be responsible to the political body represented by the officer or person in making such payment, for the full amount of the loss occasioned thereby. [Amended by 2005 c.22 §222]
