ORS 419C.492¹
Court’s authority to review placement

Commitment of a youth offender to the Oregon Youth Authority or the Department of Human Services does not terminate the court’s continuing jurisdiction to protect the rights of the youth offender or the youth offender’s parents or guardians. Notwithstanding ORS 419C.478 (Commitment to Oregon Youth Authority or Department of Human Services) (5), if upon review of a placement of a youth offender made by the youth authority or the department, the court determines that the placement is so inappropriate as to violate the rights of the youth offender or the youth offender’s parents or guardians, the court may direct the youth authority or the department to place the youth offender in a specific type of residential placement, but the actual planning and placement of the youth offender shall be the responsibility of the youth authority or the department. Nothing in this section affects any contractual right of a private agency to refuse or terminate a placement. [1993 c.33 §243; 1995 c.422 §131]
