Cougar Victims Vs State of Oregon
Oregon Rural Citizens Against Subterfuge, Michael L. Galleher, Lyle E.
Woodcock, and Ted W. Peckham (hereafter, “Cougar Victims”) sought a
declaratory judgment holding that Measure 18 (1994) was invalid because it
was unconstitutional. ER 1-5.
The trial court held that Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss Second Amended
Complaint was well founded because Cougar Victims’ complaint had been
filed more than 10 years after Measure 18 (1994)1 had gone into effect and
was therefore time barred. ER 26-27. The Trial Court also held that Measure
18 (1994) did not violate Oregon Constitution Article I, §§18 or 20 or the
Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. ER 27-30.
