Court News: Update Sept 7th 2020

Governor Cuomo in a video conference this Labor Day stated
“New York State will go down in the history books as the place that beat back COVID.”

In keeping with the states policy to social distance and protect essential workers of the state the Governor issued another Executive Order 202.60 continuing the suspensions in previous orders, effectively extending the tolling one more month until October 4th, 2020

The question has come up about what this means to cases that were filed during Covid 19, essentially when the suspension is lifted one will have the full time for service. Papers filed before Covid 19 will have the same amount of time as when the first Executive order was issued. on March 7th 2020.
