Chief Justice’s letter to the Governor and legislative leaders

Attached is a letter Chief Justice Gildea has written legislative leaders and the Governor seeking to toll various statutes of limitations during the period of time the Governor’s State of Emergency is in effect.  Although the courts remain open for some matters, access to the courts and the ability of individuals to access or preserve their rights is limited during these times.  This letter was written after the Judicial Council, the court’s governing body, met and determined such relief should come from the Legislative or Administrative Branches of government.
