Updates from Saturday, March 28

 

Please find relevant COVID-19 Executive Orders and guidance gathered as of March 28th.

 

Updates from Sunday, March 22

 

By Administrative Order 78/20, dated today, Sunday, March 22, 2020, county clerks and courts may not accept any papers for filing by any means, due to the suspension of civil statutes of limitations by Executive Order 202.8.

 

That means no new lawsuit can be commenced at this time; no affidavits of service can be filed; no motions; no infant compromise orders; no RJI’s.  

What can we do? The attached order contains a list of exemptions from the new rule, none of which apply to our practice. However, the court may deem an individual filing essential. You may wish to consider reaching out directly to the part or, if that fails, the Administrative Judge to make a request that your filing be deemed essential and the papers filed.

 

In addition, it is extremely important to note that while Executive Order 202.8 which tolls statutes of limitations and other filing deadlines expires on April 19, 2020, the administrative order precluding filing is in effect until further notice. That means we may be in the untenable position of being unable to file papers although no toll will be in effect. We will do our best to keep you informed of extensions of Executive Order 202.8 and any modifications or suspension of Administrative Order 78/20.

While we are hopeful that defense firms and carriers will make their best efforts to engage in meaningful discovery and settlement discussions, we anticipate that some may use this period to delay discovery or refuse to engage in settlement meaningful discussions.

 

To that end, we recommend attorneys and their support staff keep notes concerning their communication with adversaries and their carriers including, attempts to reach their adversary/carrier; any response they got where their adversary/carrier refuse to engage in discovery or settlement and the basis for their refusal.

 

By collecting this information, we will be able to show judges or our clients that we have been diligent in trying to keep matters active as we go through this crisis.
