(1) In all cases arising under ORS 662.010 (Labor disputes) to 662.130 (Contempt proceedings) in which a person is charged with contempt in a court of this state, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury wherein the contempt has been committed; provided, this right shall not apply to contempts committed in the presence of the court or so near thereto as to interfere directly with the administration of justice or to the misbehavior, misconduct or disobedience of any officer of the court in respect to the writs, orders or process of the court.

(2) The defendant in any proceeding for contempt of court may file with the court a demand for the retirement of the judge sitting in the proceeding, if the contempt arises from an attack upon the character or conduct of such judge and if the attack occurred elsewhere than in the presence of the court or so near thereto as to interfere directly with the administration of justice. Upon the filing of any such demand the judge shall thereupon proceed no further, but another judge shall be designated as provided by law. The demand shall be filed prior to the hearing in the contempt proceeding.

(3) Except as provided in subsections (1) and (2) of this section, proceedings for imposition of sanctions for contempt shall be conducted as provided under ORS 33.015 (Definitions for ORS 33.015 to 33.155) to 33.155 (Applicability). [Amended by 1991 c.724 §29]
