Amending the Procedure for Addressing Eviction and Foreclosure Proceedings: Memo from Chief Administrative Judge Marks in Response to EO 202.48

7.7.20 Memo from Chief Administrative Judge Lawrence K. Marks concerning impact of Governor’s Executive Order 202.48 (July 6), and providing, among other things, that “As a result of this recent Executive Order, I am amending the procedure for addressing eviction and foreclosure proceedings set forth in my memoranda of June 18 and June 23, 2020, in one important respect. Effective immediately, service of an attorney’s affirmation or a petitioner’s affidavit with the petition or complaint in an eviction or foreclosure proceeding—whether residential or commercial—is no longer required. All other aspects of proceedings described in those two memoranda—including the required service of a Notice to Respondent Tenant or a Notice to Respondent in residential eviction and foreclosure matters, remain in effect.” Read the full memo here.
