Effective immediately, eFiling will remain available for court users who would like to file matters with the Housing Court. At this time, all non-emergency cases will be scheduled for, or continued to, a date no earlier than April 21, 2020. Parties will receive notice of rescheduled cases, but plaintiffs (or plaintiff’s counsel) are advised to alert all parties of the scheduling change. Each Clerk-Magistrate, in consultation with the First Justice, has the discretion in his/her respective division to determine if an event is considered an emergency. All self-represented litigants are encouraged to eFile as set forth in the Housing Court’s Standing Order 2-20, or, in the alternative, may send all correspondence to the court by first-class mail.
