Chief Justice Cheri Beasley: 3 Additional Emergency Orders
Chief Justice Cheri Beasley has entered three additional emergency orders in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Extend several existing emergency directives
- Extend the time for filing a notice of appeal
- Stay all pending evictions, and create a new mediation program for evictions
The new emergency directives bring all pending evictions in the trial courts to a halt until June 21, the same period specified in Governor Cooper’s order. The Chief Justice’s emergency directive also instructs that sheriffs are not required to execute pending writs of possession until the end of June.
