Eugene Municipal Court recently implemented public access to our online record search module. The public is now able to look at court dockets and see basic case information at: https://www.municipalrecordsearch.com/eugeneor/
The Eugene Municipal Court was established by City Charter to adjudicate violations of the City’s municipal laws occurring within the city limits.
The City of Eugene has also adopted the Oregon State Vehicle Code by ordinance, which gives the Eugene Municipal Court jurisdiction over these offenses within the City.
All Eugene Municipal Court proceedings are governed by State of Oregon laws governing justice courts. Keeping in mind the unique nature of the Eugene community, the Eugene Municipal Court offers fair and reasonable adjudication of cases and, where appropriate, the imposition of sanctions.
Court sanctions may include fines, time in jail, community service, road / work crew, diversion / probation, or other alternative programs, depending upon the severity of the offense and the defendant’s history with the court.
