2015 ORS 30.645¹
Waiver or deferral of fees after three dismissals of action

(1) Except as provided in subsection (2) of this section, the court may not waive or defer an inmate’s fees or court costs under ORS 30.643 (Waiver or deferral of fees and costs in action against public body by inmate) if the inmate has, on three or more prior occasions while incarcerated or detained in any correctional facility, filed an action against a public body in a court of this state that was dismissed on the grounds that the action:

(a) Was frivolous or malicious;

(b) Failed to state a claim upon which relief could be granted; or

(c) Sought monetary relief from a defendant who is immune from a claim for monetary relief.

(2) The court may waive or defer fees or court costs of an inmate who would not otherwise be eligible for waiver or deferral under subsection (1) of this section if the inmate establishes in the application for waiver or deferral that the inmate is in imminent danger of serious physical injury and the action against a public body is needed to seek relief from that danger.
