The Court of Appeal must postpone to an undetermined date or reschedule the hearings on the roll for the following weeks:
Deadlines in civil matters are suspended during the health emergency period (Joint Order n° 2020-4251, March 15, 2020).
Summary: The time limits in civil matters are suspended since March 13, 2020 and will be suspended until April 7, 2020 inclusive.
In accordance with order no. 2020-009 adopted by the Minister of Health and Social Services on March 23, 2020, save for matters the courts consider urgent, the following time limits provided for in the Code of Penal Procedure are suspended:
For the time being, time limits in criminal matters have not been suspended. Therefore, notices of appeal and applications for leave to appeal must be filed within the usual time limits, subject to such extensions as may be requested in accordance with the ordinary rules. In other respects, if parties believe they will not be able to meet the deadline for the filing of briefs or the documents that stand in lieu of the brief (appeal from a sentence), they are asked to send a letter by fax or an email (see the email addresses of the offices of the Court of Appeal below) in order to request an extension. Given the exceptional circumstances, the Court of Appeal will adjust time limits accordingly.
