Executive Order No. 9O: Statutory Time Requirements in the Supreme and Appellate Courts
On Tuesday, December 1, 2020, Governor Lamont issued Executive Order No. 9O, which orders and directs that the suspension of the following requirements or deadlines shall expire upon a schedule to be determined by the Chief Court Administrator in consultation with the Chief Justice no later than December 15, 2020:
as to the Supreme or Appellate Court only, all statutory time requirements, statutes of limitations or deadlines, including those governing Superior Court filings that affect Supreme or Appellate Court matters, relating to service of process, court proceedings or court filings;
all statutory requirements or deadlines, including those governing Superior Court filings, related to the Supreme Court or the Appellate Court or their officials to issue notices, hold court, hear matters and/or render decisions; and
all time requirements related to offers of compromise as set forth in General Statutes Sections §§ 52-192a and 52-193 through 52-195.
Order No. 9O amends previous Order No. 7G, dated March 9, 2020, and Order No. 9L, dated November 9, 2020. Notably, this Order concerns statutes of limitations or deadlines (and other statutory time requirements) and not Practice Book filing requirements, the suspension of which was lifted in an order issued by the Chief Justice on June 10, 2020.
In a nutshell, this means that, as far as filings made either in or in relation to matters before the Supreme and Appellate Courts, we are back to business as usual.
