ORS 41.930¹
Admissibility of copies of original records

The copy of the records described in ORCP 55 H or ORS 136.447 (Medical records) is admissible in evidence to the same extent as though the original thereof were offered and a custodian of hospital records had been present and testified to the matters stated in the affidavit. The affidavit is admissible as evidence of the matters stated therein. The matters stated therein are presumed to be true. The presumption established by this section is a presumption affecting the burden of producing evidence. [1973 c.263 §4; 1979 c.284 §77; 1995 c.196 §4]

Note: ORCP 55 was repealed and replaced by the Council on Court Procedures Amendments promulgated on December 8, 2018, and effective January 1, 2020. The text of 41.930 (Admissibility of copies of original records) was not amended by enactment of the Legislative Assembly to reflect the repeal. Editorial adjustment of 41.930 (Admissibility of copies of original records) for the repeal of ORCP 55 has not been made. See the ORCP 55 Cross-Reference Chart available from the Council on Court Procedures.
