The state Unified Court System is restoring the filing of new nonessential lawsuits for New York City and downstate counties starting Monday, according to its chief administrative judge.

Chief Administrative Judge Lawrence Marks made the announcement Wednesday in a memorandum to trial court judges. He says new matters, previously classified as “nonessential,” will be able to be filed electronically for the five New York City counties and the Long Island counties of Nassau and Suffolk, along with Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, UIster and Westchester counties.
