My question involves criminal records for the state of: OR
Years ago I was involved in a legal situation in Oregon. The criminal case involved a prominent institution, and was fairly embarrassing to that institution, hence most of it was swept under the rug and it somehow avoided press and publicity. There were also restraining orders associated with the case, which have since expired. A recent check of the county circuit court website shows that both the criminal case, and the restraining order court proceedings have been removed from the online database, whereas a couple years ago the cases showed up.
My question is, is it possible that someone intentionally removed these cases from the database? Is it possible that the petitioner to the restraining orders, and the institution were able to somehow influence the courts to remove the cases from public view? Could the cases have been retroactively sealed without my knowledge? I'm trying to figure out what happened here. Thanks for your time.
