An order of dismissal in my case was entered and received by myself on Feb. 14, 2017, and I've been working extensively on a motion to reargue which is due within 30 days of receiving said Order. Due to inclement weather, the court closed today.
My questions are thus:
(1) When a court is forced to close due to weather or some other emergency, may the deadline be extended to the next day the court is open for filing of a motion?
(2) When tabulating the 30 days, does this include the day that the Order was entered and received or does the count begin the following day? Am I right to conclude that the 30 day deadline for my motion is today, March 15, 2017?
Yes. It's a simple answer. The papers are due the next day. As the hearings, however, you need to check with the clerks office
The deadline will only be extended if the last day to file is not available. Since there are 28 days in February this year, you have until tomorrow, the 16th.
