The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts has announced an increase in case compensation maximum amounts for work performed pursuant to Criminal Justice Act (CJA) appointments. Panel attorney case compensation maximum amounts of $9,700 and $6,900 have increased by $100 to $9,800 and $7,000, respectively.
The new case compensation maximums apply to a voucher submitted by appointed counsel if that person furnished any CJA-compensable work on or after March 1, 2014. The former case compensation maximums apply to a voucher submitted by appointed counsel if that person’s CJA-compensable work on the representation was completed before March 1, 2014.
