On April 13 the Vermont Supreme Court amended Administrative Order 49, the order declaring a Judicial Emergency. The amendments relate to service. Per an Explanatory Note:
- “Because many lawyers and parties are properly remaining in their homes during this time, many do not have regular access to their incoming paper mail and thus may fail to satisfy deadlines for responding to documents served by mail. Many also lack access to copiers, postal meters, and administrative support necessary for sending pleadings and other papers by mail.”
The April 13 amendments and full Explanatory Note are here. Relying on this post without reading the actual order is not a reasonable or competent choice.
The Order and prior amendments:
- Administrative Order 49 (the initial order declaring a Judicial Emergency)
- March 18 amendments
- March 20 amendments
- March 24 amendments
- March 25 amendments & Explanatory Note
- April 6 amendments & Explanatory Note
- April 9 amendments & Explanatory Note
A consolidated Order is available on the Judiciary’s COVID-19 information page.
