Judge Lawrence Marks Issues Administrative Order 268/20, Relating to Landlord Tenant Matters.

Pursuant to the authority vested in me, at the direction of the Chief Judge, and in light of the ongoing public health and commercial concerns raised by the COVID-I 9 health emergency, I hereby direct that:

I) petitions in eviction proceedings pursuant to Article 7 of the Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law shall include a Notice to Respondent Tenant in the form attached as Exh. I (if filing within the City of New York) or Exh. 2 (if filing outside the City of New York), printed on colored paper to enhance its distinctiveness and effectiveness; and

2) filing and service of process in eviction proceedings shall be governed by AO/267 /20.

This order shall take effect immediately, and shall supersede the provisions of any prior administrative order inconsistent with its terms.
