Update: New Jersey Supreme Court Has Not Further Extended Deadlines



On March 27, 2020 and April 29, 2020, we wrote about the New Jersey Supreme Court's Omnibus Order and Second Omnibus Order affecting court functions and operations during the COVID-19 state of emergency.Under those orders, most filing deadlines, discovery deadlines and statutes of limitations that would have expired on or after March 16, 2020 were extended through May 10, 2020.

Since that time, the Supreme Court has not issued a subsequent Order further extending deadlines.Perhaps this signals confidence that our courts and attorneys have become sufficiently adept working remotely and using virtual platforms for conferences, oral argument and various other court proceedings.Perhaps it also is a sign of the beginning of the return to our new normal.During this transition period, Municipal Courts are beginning to hold remote proceedings and the Law Division and Criminal Division continue to hear many matters and conduct case management through remote platforms.Nevertheless, under the Second Omnibus Order, civil and criminal trials remain suspended indefinitely.Also, Special Civil Part, Small Claims and Landlord/Tenant calendars also remain suspended through May 31, 2020.

See our website for other COVID-19 alerts and continue to check back for future updates.For more information, contact Nehmad Perillo Davis & Goldstein by calling (609) 927-1177.
