EXPIRING INJUNCTIONS AND SIMILAR ORDERS
Unless otherwise ordered by the applicable court, all orders in a particular case that were issued prior to March 17, 2020, after an adversarial hearing (or the opportunity for an adversarial hearing), that enjoined or otherwise restrained or prohibited a party from taking some act or engaging in some conduct until a date at any time from March 17, 2020, through August 31, 2020, shall remain in effect until the matter is rescheduled and heard on a date on or before October 13, 2020. Orders issued on or after March 17, 2020, after a virtual or in-person adversarial hearing (or the opportunity for an adversarial hearing), may issue for the full period allowed by the applicable statute.
Accordingly, if your title examination discloses an injunction or other order that is due to expire between March 16, 2020 and August 31, 2020, please contact one of the Massachusetts Underwriters for assistance.
The Court may issue further Orders regarding these matters as necessary to address circumstances arising from this pandemic. The Order is effective as of September 17, 2020 and shall remain in effect until further order of the Court.
