Order Re Paper Copies During COVID (6/22/2020)

March 26, 2020 - Operations Continue at the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit - The regular argued appeals and motions calendars continue to be heard as scheduled. As explained below, parties are expected to begin filing papers on April 6, 2020 pursuant to the Court’s March 16, 2020 order.

Document Filings and Form Deadlines - On March 16, 2020 the Second Circuit ordered a 21-day extension of time for all filings and deadlines. Filing dates set specifically by order after March 13, 2020 and the filing date for a notice of appeal or other document that confers jurisdiction on the Court were not covered by the March 16th order.

Applying the 21-day extension, filings and deadlines that were originally due between March 16 and May 17, 2020 are now due beginning April 6, 2020 and ending June 5, 2020. Absent an extraordinary circumstance, which is defined as “serious personal illness or death in counsel’s immediate family”, no additional extensions of time to file will be granted. Local Rule 27.1 (f)(1). Papers and deadlines that are due on May 18, 2020 and thereafter are due on the date specified in an order or rule. The Court does not anticipate issuing an order that further extends all filing dates and other deadlines.

March 19, 2020 - Oral Arguments at the Second Circuit - The regular argued appeals and motions calendars continue to be heard as scheduled. Effective Monday, March 23, 2020 and until the COVID-19 crisis passes, the Court will hear all oral arguments using a teleconference platform. All lawyers and pro se litigants who are scheduled to argue must do so by teleconference. The Clerk’s Office will forward teleconference instructions to the lawyers and pro se litigants appearing each argument day. In the alternative, parties may request to submit the appeal for determination.

March 16, 2020 - Operations at the Second Circuit to Address COVID-19 Pandemic - As the limitations on social interactions in public spaces continue to expand to address the spread of COVID-19, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit will remain open to fulfill its constitutional and statutory responsibilities and is adapting its operations as follows:

Oral Arguments - The regular argued appeals and motions calendars will be heard as scheduled. The Court has established a teleconference platform for judges and persons scheduled to argue who wish to appear remotely.

Access to the Courthouse - Individuals who do not have business with the Court will not be admitted until further order of the Court. Individuals who seek access to the Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse to transact business with the Court must, in the judgment of the courthouse security officers, meet the health standards specified at the entrance to the courthouse. To preserve public access to the Court’s oral arguments, the audio of arguments will be live streamed. Click here for the link to the live steam. Click here for Chief Judge Robert A. Katzmann’s order regarding access to the courthouse.

Filings - The national response to the pandemic will disrupt the ordinary course of all business activity, including the operation of the Judiciary. To minimize the disruption and assist the Court in managing Court business, all filing dates and other deadlines set out in the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, the Court’s Local Rules and the Court’s orders are extended or tolled by 21 days, effective today through May 17, 2020. For example, a notice of appearance or scheduling notification currently due on March 18th is now due on April 8th. A brief currently due on April 15th is now due May 6th. However, a brief due on May 20th continues to be due on May 20th.

Notwithstanding this general extension, a judge or panel may, by separate order, direct the parties to comply with a different filing date as deemed necessary in a particular case. In addition, in counseled civil cases the automatic dismissal provision in the order that set the original filing date remains in effect.  

The due date for a notice of appeal, petition for review or other document that confers jurisdiction on the Court is not affected by this order. The filing dates for those papers remain as stated in the statute or rule that confers jurisdiction. Click here for Chief Judge Robert A. Katzmann’s Order.
