Supreme Court Extends All Statutes of Limitations; Impact on MCL 500.3145(1) TBD
Administrative Order No. 2020-3 “is intended to extend all deadlines pertaining to case initiation and the filing of initial responsive pleadings in civil and probate matters during the state of emergency declared by the Governor related to COVID-19.”
“For all deadlines applicable to the commencement of all civil and probate case-types,” including but not limited to the deadline for filing answers, “and any statutory prerequisites to the filing of such a pleading or motion, any day that falls during the state of emergency declared by the Governor related to COVID-19 is not included for purposes of MCR 1.108(1).”
This Order clearly extends the time period for filing PIP suits under MCL 500.3145(1), but its impact on the statute’s “written notice of injury” requirement, and the “one year back” limitation in § 3145(2), is less clear.
