New Case Filings to be Permitted in New York State Courts Starting Monday

On May 20, 2020, Chief Administrative Judge Marks announced that starting on Monday, May 25, 2020, "e-filing through the NYSCEF system--including the filing of new non-essential matters--will be restored in those counties of the state that have not yet met the benchmarks required to participate in the Governor's regional reopening plan," including "the five New York City counties, Nassau and Suffolk counties, and Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, UIster, and Westchester counties." The "restoration of NYSCEF usage will be limited to cases in which represented parties file and serve all papers electronically."
