Executive Order Extends Tolling

On May 7th, 2020 Governor Cuomo issued a new Executive Order 202.28 which extended the provisions tolling statutes to June 6, 2020. Documents and statutes that would have expired are still viable through this date. We expect that until the courts reopen, these dates will continue to be extended.This same order extends the eviction moratorium on renters until August 20th, 2020, giving an additional 60 days of rent reprieve to unemployed residents, and businesses suffering from the COVID-19 shutdown. 


As of Monday May 4th, 2020 all courts that normally accept E-Filed affidavits are now accepting them again.*Please note: this is only for pending cases
