- Reaction score
From a legal case management view, I would agree that the initial lockdowns of April, May and June 2020 may have had an effect on deadlines. I know that many courts shut down during that time and deadlines were moved accordingly. However, the legal system was quick to react to this by holding hearings and meetings remotely.The Pandemic shut down much in Colorado
Delays, staffing and communication all slowed down
Many working from home
‘‘Twas a thing”
In addition, many legal practices are electronic and have been for many years. Documents are held electronically and can be accessed remotely. If either side were badly impacted by the pandemic, then allowances would be made to negate any difficulties either side may have had. To my knowledge, the prosecution did not cite the pandemic as a reason for their tardiness.
