In order to address the health and civil emergency caused by Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont issued an Executive Order suspending non-critical court operations and associated requirements. Executive Order No. 7G suspends "all statutory (1) location or venue requirements; (2) time requirements, statutes of limitation or other limitations or deadlines relating to service of process, court proceedings or court filings; and (3) all time requirements or deadlines related to the Supreme, Appellate and Superior courts or their judicial officials to issue notices, hold court, hear matters and/or render decisions." The Executive Order details the suspension of specific rights and processes, including the right to a speedy trial and statutory limitations regarding civil process, service and return. Executive Order No. 7G went into effect on March 19, and shall remain in effect for the duration of the COVID-19 public health and civil preparedness emergency, unless otherwise modified by Governor Lamont.
