I have a friend that is detained in Oregon prison on a probation violation and had or has charges pending. He received a letter stating he had a detainer so he filed for a fast and speedy trial then he received another letter saying detainer lifted or closed what does this mean? He did not go to trial or court and still has 49 days before the 90 days they had to give him a trial.
I am changing your question’s practice area to criminal defense in hopes you get some good answers.

The best answer would probably come from your friend's attorney in the county for which he had the detainer. If you're within the attorney-client privilege (spouse, family member, business associate, or a person who is necessary for the rendition of professional legal services, in the language of the legislative commentary to OEC 503) the attorney will explain all the ins and outs to you. Good luck to you and your friend!
You need the advice of an attorney versed in the law of detainers and the exact language of the two letters could be very important for that attorney to review. It could be the second letter was sent in an effort for the charging county to avoid the speedy trial issue raised when your friend made the request (no more detainer, no more speedy trial right might be the ploy here). It might be an indication that the charging county doesn't wish to proceed with the pending prosecution. Those letters need to be reviewed against the current law on detainers.
