New Jersey Supreme Court Tolls Filing Deadlines for Hurricane Sandy

Per the New Jersey Law Journal:

"In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy's devastating impact on New Jersey, the state Supreme Court has issued a tolling order allowing more time to meet filing deadlines.

"Chief Justice Stuart Rabner ordered on Nov. 9 that in computing time periods for purposes of court rules or statutes of limitation, the span from Oct. 29 — the day the storm hit — through Nov. 16 'shall be deemed the same as legal holidays.'

"Documents that had to be filed during those three weeks will be treated as on time if they are filed by Nov. 19."
