Immunity by payment to court administrator or delivery to sheriff

(1) Notwithstanding any provision of ORS 18.600 (Definitions) to 18.850 (Challenge to garnishment form), a garnishee may pay to the garnishor or to the court administrator any money that the garnishee reasonably believes may have been garnished and may deliver to the sheriff in the manner provided by ORS 18.600 (Definitions) to 18.850 (Challenge to garnishment form) any property that the garnishee reasonably believes to have been garnished. The garnishee has no duty to determine whether money or property held by the garnishee is exempt from garnishment or to determine whether the money or property is garnishable property.

(3) If the garnishee requests a receipt, the sheriff or court administrator shall provide the garnishee with a receipt for any property delivered to the sheriff or payment made to the court administrator.

(4) A garnishor or the garnishor’s attorney may disclose the full Social Security number for a debtor to a garnishee if the garnishee requests the number for the purpose of identifying the debtor.

(5) A garnishee is not liable to any person by reason of using all or part of a debtor’s Social Security number for the purpose of identifying the debtor. [2001 c.249 §21; 2003 c.576 §54; 2009 c.230 §4]
