Douglas C. Dalena
Deputy General Counsel, Office of the Governor

Program Description

To slow COVID-19's spread, stabilize courts, and protect litigants' rights, the Governor's Office issued a raft of executive orders between March 2019 and now. Statutes of limitation were suspended, virtual notarization was authorized, and court deadlines were postponed. Litigation ground to a halt, then began to resume, still subject to many of these orders. Attorney Dalena has been in the thick of it, as Deputy General Counsel to Governor Ned Lamont. He joins us for a look back at how the pandemic orders changed the way we litigate, and what we can expect going forward. Whether you are advising a client on when to file or awaiting a decision from a judge, you will leave with a better understanding of how the Governor's executive orders shape the field.
