On April 13th, 2020, the Federal Judiciary Council ("CJF") issued the resolution number 6/2020, which determines the extension of the disqualification of the judicial terms and the suspension of the tasks of the Federal Judiciary (District Courts, Collegiate and Unitary Courts), due to the public health contingency derived from the Coronavirus (COVID-19), fixing this disqualification for the period from March 18 to May 5th, 2020.
From the above, it is reported that the CJF issued on April 27th, 2020, the resolution number 8/2020, which determines to extend the disqualification of judicial terms until May 31, 2020, so that the judicial function will only admit urgent cases, which include criminal matters, civil cases of bankruptcy or family matters and, in the case of labor matters, the declaration of work strike.
Likewise, will be resumed the resolutions for those cases in which the issue of a sentence or final resolution is pending, as well as the processing and resolution of trials that were processed before the declaration of the contingency through the "online trial" system, with the exception of those that are awaiting the discharge of hearings.
Therefore, we warn you that the amparo trials and/or appeals pending from resolution, which correspond to the jurisdictional bodies of the CJF, with the exception of urgent matters, will be suspended until May 31, 2020 when the respective tasks will be resumed.
