North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Cheri Beasley issued an order yesterday, April 13, 2020, further extending filing and other court-related deadlines in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The order states that all pleadings, motions, notices, and other documents and papers that were or are due to be filed in any county of this state on or after March 16, 2020 and before the close of business on June 1, 2020 shall be deemed to be timely filed if they are filed before the close of business on June 1, 2020.

The order further states that all other acts that were or are due to be done in any county of this state on or after March 16, 2020 and before the close of business on June 1, 2020 shall be deemed to be timely done if they are done before the close of business on June 1, 2020.

Importantly, this order does not apply to documents and papers due to be filed or acts due to be done in the appellate courts.

Pursuant to an order issued today, April 14, 2020, by Chief Business Court Judge Louis Bledsoe, the Chief Justice’s order also applies to pending actions in the North Carolina Business Court.
