The U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania has implemented a new automated CJA eVoucher program which will eliminate the need to submit paper vouchers. All vouchers are now processed electronically, thus expediting approval and payment.
**System maintenance will be performed on the Saturday after the third Tuesday of each month from 5:00 A.M. to 11:00 P.M.**
March 28, 2018 - Notice to CJA Panel Attorneys - CJA hourly rates have increased from $132.00 to $140.00 for work performed on or after 3/23/18 in non-capital cases and from $185.00 to $188.00 for work performed on or after 3/23/18 in capital cases.
