COVID-19: extension of time limits and written procedure before courts and tribunals

Royal Decree No. 2 of 9 April 2020 concerning the extension of limitation periods and other time limits for bringing legal actions and the extension of procedural time limits and written procedure before the courts and tribunals (BOJ 9 April 2020), aims to respond as quickly as possible to the difficulties in the functioning of public, economic, judicial and administrative spheres, following the measures taken against the Covid-19 virus. 

In this connection, the Federal Executive has, inter alia, been working on the adoption of a draft Royal Decree on special powers concerning the extension of limitation periods and other time limits for bringing legal proceedings, the extension of time limits for proceedings before the civil and administrative courts and the written procedure for civil proceedings.
