Order suspends filing deadlines in state high court and appeals court

The deadlines for all filings, jurisdictional and non-jurisdictional, in the Michigan Supreme Court and Court of Appeals are suspended as of March 24, 2020, the effective date of Executive Order 2020-21, and will be tolled until the expiration of EO 2020-21 or a subsequent EO that extends the period in which citizens are required to suspend activities that are not necessary to sustain or protect life.

This AO gives filers the same number of days to submit their filings after the EO expires as they had before the suspension went into effect. For example, if the deadline for filing an application for leave to appeal with the Michigan Supreme Court is March 26, 2020, the filer would have three business days after the EO expires to timely submit the application with the court.
