I’m Claudia M. Burton, and I am a trial court judge in the Marion County Circuit Court in Salem, Oregon.

I put this site up in 2006; in July of 2015 I updated the contents and moved the site to a WordPress platform. That should make it possible to keep the site more current as updates will be easier. I host this site at my own expense and do all the work to maintain it as a service to the Bar and the public.

This site does not represent the Marion County Circuit Court as a whole, or, for that matter, anyone at the court other than myself. For information about the court, please see the official website for the Marion County Circuit Court, which can be found here.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will find useful information here.
