Coronavirus vs. courts activity – update 23 March 2020

20.03.2020

Due to the ongoing state of the epidemic threat, the presidents of most courts of appeal have already ordered cancellation of their hearings in April 2020 (except for urgent cases). The status of hearings in April in particular courts of appeal is as follows:

✔️ Court of Appeal in Bialystok – as planned
Court of Appeal in Gdańsk – canceled
Court of Appeal in Lublin – canceled
❌ Court of Appeal in Łódź – canceled
❌ Court of Appeal in Poznań – canceled
❌ Court of Appeal in Katowice – canceled
❌ Court of Appeal in Cracow – canceled
❌ Court of Appeal in Szczecin – canceled
❌ Court of Appeal in Wrocław – canceled
❌ Court of Appeal in Rzeszów – canceled
❌ Court of Appeal in Warsaw – canceled

Orders to cancel hearings in regional and district courts will be issued by the proper court presidents.

We are monitoring the current situation in the Polish courts. Because of the lack of unified regulation regarding court operations during a state of epidemic threat, we recommend checking the current orders of the courts’ presidents and contacting the courts by phone to determine whether a hearing in a specific case will take place on the scheduled date.
