The Government will launch a plan to streamline the social and contentious jurisdiction and the commercial courts after the state of alarm

The 19th additional provision of the rule establishes that "once the declaration of the state of alarm and its extensions has been voided", the Government will approve "as soon as possible and in any case within the maximum period of 15 days ", an action plan to streamline judicial activity in courts and tribunals of the social and contentious-administrative order, as well as in commercial courts, within the executive's transition strategy after the end of exceptional measures .

Said action plan must be proposed by the Ministry of Justice, which will prepare it in coordination with the General Council of the Judiciary, the State Attorney General, the autonomous communities with powers in the matter and the General Council of Spanish Lawyers (CGAE ), in the same way that has been done with all the measures on the provision of essential services by officials at the service of the Justice administration during the containment of the pandemic.

The Crisis Coordination Commission of the Administration of Justice for the fight against Covid-19, which gathers all those administrations every week with the coordination of the Minister of Justice, Juan Carlos Campo, has already agreed in its session last Friday – held through videoconference- start work to analyze and adopt the precise measures for the gradual return to normality of the judicial bodies after the resumption of procedural deadlines that, except in the case of essential services, have been suspended with the state of alarm .

The jurisdictional orders and the judicial areas to which the additional provision of the Decree-Law approved today refers are those that, predictably, will be most affected after the economic activity stoppage that has entailed confinement and the exceptional measures approved by the Executive.
