Due to the shutdown of the court system brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Governor has issued a series of executive orders that toll the statutes of limitations on actions in New York, as well as filing deadlines applicable to litigation in the state court system. The original executive order was issued on March 20, 2020, and has twice been extended by subsequent executive orders, the most recent of which extends this toll to June 6, 2020—and it is possible that the toll may yet be extended further. Despite the clear language of the executive order and the equally clear intent in issuing it to facilitate a shutdown of businesses to cope with the COVID-19 emergency, there has been a degree of confusion and trepidation about its impact. In this column, we therefore review the pertinent executive orders and analyze them in relation to the decisional law and prior executive orders issued in response to different emergencies.
