  • waiver of conditions
  • subrogation for amount paid

(1) Except as provided in this section, reimbursement from the client security fund is discretionary with the board of governors.

(2) The board shall not authorize payment unless the conditions of ORS 9.655 (Investigation of claim of loss) (1) have been found to exist. However, the board may, in its sole discretion, waive one or more of the conditions of ORS 9.655 (Investigation of claim of loss) (1) in cases of extreme hardship or special and unusual circumstances. The state bar is subrogated, in the amount that a client’s claim is reimbursed from the client security fund, to all rights and remedies of that client against the attorney whose dishonest conduct caused the loss, against the estate of the attorney or against any other person liable for the loss.
