Governor Cuomo Tolls Statute of Limitations to June 6, 2020

Governor Cuomo has signed a new executive order extending many of the previous actions taken in his previous orders. Included among these extensions is the tolling of statute of limitations until June 6, 2020. This is necessary, of course, because litigants are still prohibited from filing new non-essential actions. Litigators should be aware that this does not toll all deadlines in pending and ongoing actions. Notices of appeal, motion deadlines, time to answer and appear, and discovery deadlines are all up and running with the courts' expanded remote operations. Additionally, statute of limitations on federal claims are not affected as federal courts remain fully operational. A copy of the executive order, No. 202.28, can be found HERE
