DOH Office of Legal Counsel
The Department of Health (Department) building closed on March 16, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the Department remains closed to the public, the litigation docket managed by the Office of Legal Counsel (Office) will resume operations on June 30, 2020. The Office will provide for in-person filings on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Upon arrival at the Department, you may need to call 717-783-2500 to be met at the door for receipt of your filing. Facial masks are required. Outside of the days and times provided for in-person filing, pleadings and other filings may be sent to the Department's docket clerks via US Postal Service mail. The Department will rely on a legible US Postal Service postmark (not a postage meter mark) or a postal form 3817 for timeliness purposes. The days and times for in-person filing may be modified in response to ongoing mitigation efforts. Please check back frequently for updates.
