Another (x5) 30 Days in the Toll -- Executive Order No. 202.60 Continues COVID-19 Tolling of Procedural Time Limits Through October 4, 2020

At least the Governor's office didn't wait until tomorrow morning at 6:11 AM this time.   

For the fifth time since New York's COVID-19 toll of "any specific time limit for the commencement, filing, or service of any legal action, notice, motion, or other process or proceeding, as prescribed by the procedural laws of the state, including but not limited to *** the civil practice law and rules, *** or by any other statute, local law, ordinance, order, rule, or regulation, or part thereof" went into effect, Governor Cuomo's office has further extended that toll for another 30 days. 

Executive Order 202.60, posted this afternoon, "do[es] hereby continue the suspensions, modifications, and directives, not superseded by a subsequent directive, made by Executive Orders 202 up to and including 202.21, and 202.27, 202.28, 202.29, 202.30, 202.38, 202.39, 202.40, 202.48, 202.49, 202.50, as extended, and Executive Order 202.55 and 202.55.1 for another thirty days through October 4, 2020[.]"

If New York's COVID-19 toll is not continued again past October 4, 2020, the number will be 199 -- 199 days added to the expiration date of the procedural time limit at issue, such as a statute of limitations or a contractual suit limitation. 

If you haven't been keeping track, my prior posts on this toll by executive order are here and here.

Now go enjoy your long Labor Day weekend, lawyers.
