Due to budget constraints facing the judiciary, and Defender Services in particular, the hourly rate to be paid to attorneys appointed under the Criminal Justice Act, 18 U.S.C. sec. 3006A, will be reduced to $110 for work performed between September 1, 2013 and September 30, 2014. Separate vouchers will be required to reflect work performed at different rates. Please contact the Magistrate Judge in your division if you have any questions.
