NY Governor Suspends Statute of Limitations

New York State Governor Suspends Statute of Limitations

On Friday, March 20, 2020, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an Executive Order, which, among other things, tolled the statute of limitations for the commencement of lawsuits and even the filing of Notices of Claim (a legal pre-requisite to commencing litigation against governmental entities and municipalities). The tolling period runs from March 20th to April 19th. Given the ever-changing legal landscape as the Coronavirus outbreak has escalated, PMT will continue to follow important developments such as this most recent Executive Order and keep our valued partners abreast of all matters of significance to our shared business interests.
