Notes of Decisions

Where parties to contract were domiciled and contracted in Oregon, contractor was licensed in Oregon and only relevant event that took place outside state was performance of labor, Oregon statute governing contracts between forestry contractors and workers is applicable to ac­tion for unpaid wages.
