Corona exceptions in court or not?

With its COVID-19 regulation on judiciary and procedural rules of April 16, 2020, the Federal Council enacted the necessary provisions in civil, debt enforcement and bankruptcy proceedings enabling judicial authorities to effectively deal with civil proceedings during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The regulation had a first term of validity until September 30, 2020. Based on the COVID-19 Act of September 25, 2020, the Federal Council has now extended the validity of this regulation until December 31, 2021.

The October newsletter provides an overview of the current status of the temporarily valid provisions.
