Oregon Rules of Civil Procedure – ORCP 4B

If any Oregon statutes confer jurisdiction, this rule would acknowledge their use.  Before its repeal in 1979, Oregon’s long-arm statutes were codified in ORS Chapter 14.  This rule could be useful in federal court, as Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4 authorizes a federal court to assert personal jurisdiction over a nonresident defendant to the extent permissible under the law of the state where the district court sits.  See, Lincoln General Ins. Co. v. A & G Commercial Trucking, Inc., 2013 WL 2896824, *3 (M.D.Pa. 2013).
