A coda to "Request for reconsideration of a final administrative decision does not toll the running of the relevant statute of limitations"

Important practice reminder

An important reminder that applies in most administrative jurisdictions: "Request for reconsideration of a final administrative decision does not toll the running of the relevant statute of limitations", on the New York Public Personnel Law blog. Neither do settlement negotiations or even (sometimes) administrative appeals. And, as in the case discussed in [another post*], the statutes of limitations for judicial review of administrative decision are often very short (four months for a personnel decision in this case). In my practice days, one of the first research tasks I set myself when taking on an administrative matter was "how many days do I have to take this to the Court of Appeals if it goes south?" Or north, as the case may be. Just in case.

“And typically the S/L is measured from the promulgation of a "final" order. When is "final" in this context in this jurisdiction? Do you know?” 

* Dean Patty Salkin (Albany Law School) describes such a situation in "Fed. Dist. Court Prevents Performing Arts Center From Relocating to Dilapidated Historic Warehouse" on her Law of the Land blog:
