Judicial Branch Administration | Sunset Emergency Rules in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic (Action Required)

Summary

Summary

The chairs of the Judicial Council’s six internal committees recommend that the Judicial Council amend emergency rules 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 13 to sunset the rules on June 30, 2022. This recommendation responds to the request of Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye that the chairs of the internal committees develop and propose to the Judicial Council a plan for retiring any emergency rules that are still in effect. This is consistent with the council’s original intent that the rules be temporary to address the emergency presented by the initial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

2.                     Amend emergency rules 9 and 10 to sunset on June 30, 2022, to confirm that the effect of the tolling or extension in the rules may extend beyond the date of the sunset, and to add advisory committee comments explaining the long-term effect of the two rules.
