2015 ORS 20.094¹
Attorney fees in actions or suits in which discharge in bankruptcy asserted

In any action or suit on a debt in which the defendant asserts a discharge in bankruptcy as a defense, the court shall award a reasonable attorney fee at trial and on appeal to the prevailing party. [1971 c.167 §2; 1973 c.216 §1; 1981 c.897 §4; 1995 c.618 §18]

Notes of Decisions

Where, in creditor-debtor ac­tion, creditor was granted voluntary nonsuit before issue of debtor's discharge in bankruptcy could be considered, it was not abuse of discre­tion for trial court to deny debtor award of attorney fees. Kozol v. Serean, 279 Or 267, 566 P2d 901 (1977)
