In an analysis for the New York Law Journal, Geisler explains the difference in wording of Executive Order No. 202.8 compared to the others issued by Cuomo, and the key decisions that have helped to clarify if these executive orders operated to toll statutes of limitation and other filing periods under New York State Law.
