ORS 97.910¹
Disuse as prima facie evidence of abandonment

In all cases arising under ORS 97.870 (Unused and uncared for portions of cemetery declared common nuisances) to 97.900 (Summons), the fact that the owner, holder or interested party, of the unused and unimproved portion of the cemetery has not, for a term of 20 years or more, used the plot and has failed to keep it clear of weeds or brush is prima facie evidence that the owner, holder or interested party has abandoned it.
