IN RE: ADMINISTRATIVE RULE 17 EMERGENCY RELIEF FOR INDIANA TRIAL COURTS RELATING TO the 2019 NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19).
On April 7, 2020, the Indiana Supreme Court and Court of Appeals of Indiana extended certain emergency relief through May 4, 2020 for matters in the Indiana Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, Tax Court, and Clerk of Courts.
Due to the ongoing public health emergency relating to the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Courts on their own motion EXTEND the relief granted on April 7 and ORDER as follows:
1. Filing pursuant to Appellate Rule 23(A)(1) by personal delivery to the Clerk or the “rotunda filing drop box” is suspended through May 18, 2020.
2. Parties who cannot meet the deadlines established in the March 23, 25, and 27 orders issued in the above cases are directed to move for an extension of time (notwithstanding any contrary provision of Appellate Rules 9(A)(5), 35(C), 54, 57, or 63) or for leave to file their document belatedly pursuant to Appellate Rule 1. Such motions shall be verified (signed under a statement affirming, under penalties for perjury, that the statements made in the motion are true). Relief will be granted for good cause shown, notwithstanding any provision of the Appellate Rules imposing a more stringent standard.
In all other respects, the April 7 order issued in the above cases remains in full force and effect.
