Chief justice continues suspension of deadlines, time limitations


TOPEKA—Chief Justice Marla Luckert issued a new administrative order January 8 continuing to suspend statutes of limitation, statutory time standards, deadlines, and time limitations started under earlier orders in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Luckert's action to issue Administrative Order 2021-PR-001 follows the State Finance Council's January 6 decision extending the COVID-19 state of disaster emergency from January 11 through January 26.


Luckert said the health and safety of jurors, witnesses, litigants, members of the public, law enforcement officials, court employees, and judges drove her decision to continue the suspensions.
