2017 ORS 9.529¹
Status of proceedings relating to discipline, admission or reinstatement

Bar proceedings relating to discipline, admission and reinstatement are neither civil nor criminal in nature. They are sui generis and within the inherent power of the Supreme Court to control. The grounds for denying any applicant admission or reinstatement or for the discipline of attorneys set forth in ORS 9.005 (Definitions for ORS 9.005 to 9.757) to 9.757 (Retention of client materials) are not intended to limit or alter the inherent power of the Supreme Court to deny any applicant admission or reinstatement to the bar or to discipline a member of the bar. [1983 c.618 §3; 1997 c.249 §9]
