ORS 128.710¹
  • jurisdiction of court

(1) The Attorney General may institute appropriate proceedings to secure compliance with ORS 128.610 (Short title) to 128.769 (Rules) and to invoke the jurisdiction of the court. A court may issue a temporary, preliminary or permanent injunction to restrain violations of ORS 128.610 (Short title) to 128.769 (Rules) and may require a charitable organization or responsible charitable fiduciary to provide or pay for an accounting, or may order other appropriate relief. Willful failure to comply with an order of any court having jurisdiction of charitable trusts shall constitute grounds for removal of the officers, directors, trustees or other charitable fiduciary and the appointment by the court of successor officers, directors, trustees or other charitable fiduciaries. The powers and duties of the Attorney General provided in ORS 128.610 (Short title) to 128.769 (Rules) are in addition to existing powers and duties.

(2) Nothing in ORS 128.610 (Short title) to 128.769 (Rules) 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.
