Supreme Court announces 4:30 deadline for responses to ILS stimulus check petition

Individuals or entities that intend to file a response to a petition brought by legal aid providers and nonprofits seeking to restrict civil collections of federal stimulus check proceeds must do so by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, the Indiana Supreme Court announced.

The high court noted the deadline in a Thursday order following a petition filed by Indiana Legal Services, Prosperity Indiana, the Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic, and the Indiana Institute for Working Families asking the justices to engage in emergency rulemaking to protect vulnerable households from having their federal stimulus checks seized by creditors.

Specifically, the petition asked the Supreme Court to suspend the rule that implements holds of up to 90 days on bank accounts. Also, they are asking the court to issue an order ensuring the release of the CARES Act payments to individuals or families who have judgments or garnishments filed against them during the public health crisis.
