2017 ORS 34.670¹
Replication following return
  • hearing

The plaintiff in the proceeding, on the return of the writ, may, by replication, signed as in an action, controvert any of the material facts set forth in the return, or the plaintiff may allege therein any fact to show, either that imprisonment or restraint of the plaintiff is unlawful, or that the plaintiff is entitled to discharge. Thereupon the court or judge shall proceed in a summary way to hear such evidence as may be produced in support of or against the imprisonment or restraint, and to dispose of the party as the law and justice of the case may require. [Amended by 1979 c.284 §73; 2005 c.22 §28]

Notes of Decisions

Peti­tioner is not entitled to present evidence on peti­tion for writ of habeas corpus unless pleadings make factual allega­tion sufficient to support the relief requested. Scott v. Cupp, 55 Or App 23, 637 P2d 173 (1981)

Allega­tions in replica­tion did not constitute evidence, so hearing on whether evidence accompanying answer had been controverted was not re­quired. McClintock v. Schiedler, 123 Or App 334, 859 P2d 580 (1993)

Notes of Decisions

Availability of relief under writ of habeas corpus is not defeated by transfer of custody from one correc­tional facility to an­oth­er while matter is pending. Clemman v. Wright, 109 Or App 325, 819 P2d 327 (1991); McGee v. Johnson, 161 Or App 384, 984 P2d 341 (1999)
