NYS Appellate Division Second Department Lifts the Suspension of Filing Deadlines in a Limited Manner

By Administrative Order (ADM 2020-0506) the Second Department rescinded the Administrative Order by which all filing deadlines were suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and imposed filing deadlines in certain limited situations. Generally speaking, those situations relate to criminal and actively managed appeals, and to motion practice in all matters. The Court continues to encourage counsel to make digital filings in all matters whenever possible, either via NYSCEF if the appeal is subject to mandatory e-filing, or through the digital portal on the Court’s website. The Court also encourages counsel to make digital submissions through its portal in matters currently pending in which only hard copy submissions were previously made.
