Federal Council postpones start of court vacations

Pursuant to the decree, the Federal Council has announced the start of the Easter judicial vacations in civil and administrative proceedings as early as 21 March 2020 (instead of 5 April 2020).

The prolongation applies in all proceedings under federal or cantonal law. Only in proceedings in which no court vacations already apply, in particular in urgent matters (summary proceedings), conciliation proceedings and criminal proceedings, the deadlines do not stand still.

In addition, the Cantonal Court of the Canton of Zug has decided that from now on, and for the time being until 19 April 2020, no court hearings will be held. This does not apply to urgent court hearings, which cannot be postponed. All scheduled hearings that are not affected by the exception will be postponed.
