Irregular Operations (IROPs) training is a priority for all of National Travel’s advisors. Each traveler’s flight interruption, or potential problem, is acted on in real time. On many occasions, our Travel Specialist will have already selected alternate flights for an itinerary as a backup, before the client is even aware of the issue!

Our advantage is that we research and analyze not only one airline or routing, but on multiple airlines and routing options to find the best solution. On a stormy winter day, it is not uncommon for our Concierge Group to act as triage in routing flight status reports to our Travel Advisors, who may have hundreds of these issues to work through during a daily operation. Our services, including the rerouting and re-booking of itineraries impacted by IROPs, are available 24 hours a day, without charge!

CJA attorneys and CJA experts can be reimbursed for their travel. A motion for travel from the CJA attorney to the Court should be made with specific information, such as travel dates, travel location, and reason for travel. Once the judicial officer approves the motion for travel, the CJA attorney or expert can then make travel arrangements. National Travel (800) 445-0668 may be used so that the airfare can be paid with the Government's travel credit card. Questions regarding travel should be directed to Leeann Weber (216) 357-7025.

The following are new procedures for submitting and processing the Travel Request and Authorization (“TA”).

The attorney is to complete the TA and submit it to the Office of the CJA Supervising Attorney via CJA Services . If a Court Order has been issued authorizing the travel, a copy of the order should be included. Once authorized, the attorney will be notified by e-mail and the attorney should log into CJA Services to obtain a copy of the TA. The traveler is to then contact National Travel Service (NTS) at 1-800-445-0668 to arrange the travel.

United States District Court  for the   District of Massachusetts

Cja travel guidelines, introduction.

Travel expenses reasonably incurred in providing representation under the Criminal Justice Act (CJA) may be claimed on the CJA 20 or 30 voucher form for attorneys and CJA 21 or 31 voucher form for experts and must be itemized and documented with appropriate receipts. Following the passage in late 1992 of Section 702 of the Federal Courts Administration Act of 1992 (Public Law 102-572, 106 Stat. 4506), attorneys and experts providing representation pursuant to the CJA were authorized to obtain government travel rates. These guidelines have been prepared to inform CJA attorneys and experts of the court’s policies and procedures related to travel beyond the local area.

Considerable savings to the government will be achieved through compliance with these guidelines. All CJA attorneys and experts are required to arrange their out-of-district travel in this manner. The guidelines set forth the procedures for obtaining government travel rates and provide a summary of recurring allowable and non-allowable charges. While it is impossible to address all possible travel-related issues, the guidelines are intended to serve as a basic resource.

Authorization to Travel

Prior to inter-district and overnight travel, approval is required. The CJA attorney is to request permission by filing with the court an ex parte motion for travel for themself or their expert.

Once authorized, the traveler is to then contact National Travel (NT) at (800) 445-0668 to arrange the travel. NT will provide the traveler and the CJA Analyst with an itinerary. All passenger receipts must be submitted with the voucher billing for any associated time and expenses.

An attorney or expert traveling as part of his or her representation under the CJA is expected to exercise the same care in incurring expenses that a prudent person would exercise if traveling on personal business. Only those expenses which were actually incurred and were essential to and in connection with representation under the CJA should be claimed.

An attorney or expert may be compensated for time spent in travel status to and from the travel destination. However, since this unproductive travel time is foreseeable, every effort should be made to work on existing matters. All other compensation for time while in travel status will be paid only for actual services rendered.

In addition, an attorney appointed to represent a fact witness has the obligation to inform the witness to contact the U.S. Marshal’s office on how to make travel arrangements and to obtain government transportation rates when the witness is required to remain away from their residence overnight. A fact Witness Voucher, Form OBD-3 must be prepared by the attorney for each witness. For detailed information, call the U.S. Marshal or obtain USMS Pub. No. 74, September 1997.

Transportation Allowable

A.  Expenses Payable as Transportation

Transportation expenses that may be claimed on the voucher or paid directly by the court include fares, automobile rental fees including gasoline charges, mileage payments for use of privately-owned vehicle (POV), parking and any expenses incident to transportation such as baggage transfer, business-related telephone, and food when on overnight travel. Regardless of the dollar amount, receipts are required for reimbursement of all travel expenses.

B.  Methods of Transportation

Authorized Methods. Methods of transportation authorized for travel include railroads, airlines, ferries, buses, subways, transportation terminal limousines, taxis, rental automobiles, privately-owned vehicles, and other necessary means of conveyance. Travel shall be by the method of transportation that will result in the greatest advantage to the government, cost and other factors considered. There is no reimbursement for first class or business class travel expenses. Travelers should exercise prudence in the selection of the least expensive rental vehicle necessary to adequately perform the official travel. The court will not reimburse Personal Accident Insurance (PAI) or Personal Effects Coverage (PEC) for rental automobiles. In addition, no reimbursement will be made for add-ons or upgrades when renting an automobile, or for the excessive cost of refueling a rental car at the rental agency.

Privately-Owned Vehicle. Use of a privately-owned vehicle for CJA case-related travel should be claimed at the mileage rate then in effect for the federal judiciary employees. The government will reimburse case-related parking fees and tolls if documented with receipts.

C.  Travel Rates

Travel at Government Discount Rate. The use of government discount fares is considered advantageous to the government. In order to obtain the government discount fare, tickets must be charged to the court’s Government Transportation Account (GTA). Only officially authorized travel related to CJA representation may be arranged in this manner.

Because the TA is an official government document, it should enable the traveler to obtain government rates at hotels and car rental agencies as well. Costs for other than common carriers (which are paid directly by the court) may be claimed for reimbursement on the CJA 20 or 30 form under the travel section and must be documented with receipts, regardless of the dollar amount. Credit card statements alone is not sufficient for reimbursement purposes.

Other special, excursion, and reduced rate round-trip fares for official travel may be used (in lieu of government-contract fares and regular coach) when the traveler can determine prior to the start of a trip that any such type of service is practical and more economical to the government. Special fares that involve penalties for changes or cancellation may be utilized provided that, to a high degree of certainty, no changes or cancellation will occur. Liability for costs for changes or cancellation over which the traveler had control will accrue to the traveler if a change or cancellation was due to personal preferences.

Travel at Other Than Government Rate. When an attorney or expert arranges their own travel without using the government rate, they will be reimbursed using the contracted government coach fare or the actual rate paid, whichever is lower. Reimbursement will be for the common carrier that is the most efficient, expeditious and advantageous to the court. All reimbursement for use of a common carrier must be supported by travel receipts. Submission of credit card statements alone is not sufficient for reimbursement purposes.

Reimbursable Expenses

Travel expenses that will be reimbursed are confined to those expenses essential to and in connection with representation under the CJA and supported by receipts. In determining the reasonableness of travel costs, the court will be guided by the prevailing limitations placed upon travel and subsistence expenses of federal judiciary employees in accordance with existing government travel regulations. The court’s Financial Manager may be contacted for guidance in determining the reasonableness of such costs.

With the exception of tips and mileage calculations, receipts must be submitted with the voucher for all travel (including to and from the court) and subsistence expenses regardless of the amount incurred. Submission of credit card statements alone is not sufficient for reimbursement purposes.

When the travel period is 24 hours or less and no lodging is incurred, meals will not be reimbursed. Only those travel expenses related to the case will be reimbursed such as mileage, parking, and tolls.

During authorized overnight travel, reimbursement will be made for actual subsistence expenses. Expenses of subsistence include all reasonable charges for meals (maximum three per day), lodging, all fees and tips to waiters, porters, and hotel maids, and transportation between places of lodging and business.

Non-Reimbursable Expenses

The cost of travel for spouses, other family members and friends is not allowable. In addition, snacks, alcoholic beverages, entertainment (e.g., movies), travel insurance taken while traveling, parking fines or fees for traffic violations, personal automobile expenses, expenses incurred in traveling by indirect routes for personal reasons, use of taxis to obtain meals, and expenses submitted without receipts are not reimbursable. If a traveler lengthens a trip or incurs any cost for personal reasons or performs work that is not related to the purpose of the official travel, the increased cost caused by such action is not allowable.

  • Voucher for Fees & Expenses
  • Creating Other Vouchers

The court makes the following types of appointments:

  • Direct criminal appeals: In appeals from federal convictions, the court automatically appoints district court counsel unless there is a motion for withdrawal or substitution, in which event new counsel is appointed from the court's CJA Panel. CJA appointment is also automatic if the state or federal government appeals the grant of post-conviction relief under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 or 2255.
  • Discretionary CJA appointments: In collateral appeals in which there is no right to representation, the court makes discretionary appointments at the direction of a judge or panel of judges.
  • Discretionary IFP appointments: When formal briefing and oral argument are required to resolve a civil or agency appeal by an indigent litigant, the court appoints counsel using its discretionary authority under 28 U.S.C. § 1915. These appointments are often referred to as assignments.
  • Amicus appointments: When formal briefing and oral argument are required to resolve an appeal in which the appellant is not indigent, the court appoints amicus counsel to address the issue as a friend of the court. These appointments are often referred to as assignments.

The annual application period for the court's CJA Appellate Panel is generally open from June 1 to September 1. Fourth Circuit bar members with experience in federal criminal law and appellate procedure are invited to apply for panel membership using the CJA Panel Application Form . Counsel must be a member of the Fourth Circuit Bar and should maintain a physical office within the circuit. Applications are reviewed by the CJA Appellate Panel Committee , and the court takes final action on the applications in the fall. Appointments to the CJA Panel extend for a 3-year term. For members whose terms have expired, reapplication can be made by an abbreviated application for renewal within 12 months of expiration of membership. Additional information may be found on our  Appointed Counsel page.

Counsel appointed in the district court who wish to withdraw from CJA representation on appeal may file a motion to withdraw in electronic form or, if not an ECF filer, in paper form -- counsel is not required to register for electronic filing for the sole purpose of withdrawing from the case. An attorney who has entered an appearance may withdraw only with consent of court after giving notice to the party represented. A motion to withdraw should state fully the reason for the request. Loc. R. 46(c) .

Compensation

The hourly compensation rate for work performed on or after January 1, 2024, in CJA and non-CJA cases is $172. The hourly compensation rate for work performed on or after January 1, 2024, in capital cases is $220. Earlier rates are available at the Guide to Judiciary Policy, Guidelines for Administering the CJA and Related Statutes .

  • CJA Cases: In non-capital cases, the CJA imposes a cap on compensation of $9,600 in direct criminal, habeas corpus, and section 2255 appeals , effective January 1, 2024. The CJA imposes a $2,900 cap on compensation on interlocutory appeals, appeals from orders dismissing an indictment, appeals from post-judgment motions, appeals from sentence reduction motions, bail appeals, commitment appeals, appeals from probation revocation proceedings, extraordinary writs, and motions for authorization to file successive petitions. ( 7 Guide to Judiciary Policy § 230.23.20 ). Compensation in excess of these limits can be requested in an extended or complex case in which excess payment is necessary to provide fair compensation.
  • Capital Cases: In capital cases, there is no limit on compensation, but counsel anticipating that they will expend a total of more than 300 hours on representation at the appeal stage or 100 hours on representation at the certiorari stage must file a budget authorization request with the court of appeals within 21 days of appointment.
  • Non-CJA Cases: In civil, civil rights, agency, and amicus cases, counsel is appointed using the court's discretionary authority under 28 U.S.C. § 1915, and the court pays a modest amount from its Admission Fund. Local Rule 46(d) establishes a cap of $750 plus expenses, but the cap may be exceeded upon motion and justification.

The statutory cap on case compensation is exclusive of "Travel Expenses" and "Other Expenses." If another attorney is substituted during the appeal, the maximum applies to joint compensation. See 7 Guide to Judiciary Policy § 230.23.20  for detailed information on case compensation maximums.

Counsel must log in to the appellate CJA eVoucher system, create a CJA 20 or CJA 30 voucher, and enter counsel's services and expenses within 60 days of final disposition of the case, unless good cause is shown. Depending on the course of the case, this may be 60 days from entry of judgment, dismissal of the appeal, or denial of rehearing, whichever is later. If counsel files a petition for writ of certiorari, the 60-day period runs from the filing of the certiorari petition. In capital cases, counsel submits two separate vouchers – one upon completion of the appeal and one upon grant or denial of a petition for certiorari. See  CJA eVoucher for more information.

If undue hardship is caused by extraordinary and substantial expenses and case delay, such as in death penalty or similarly significant matters, counsel may move for issuance of an interim voucher, setting forth in detail the reasons for the request.

Counsel may submit a late CJA claim, but the claim must be supported with a detailed explanation as to why the claim was not submitted within 60 days of final disposition.

The court seeks to process vouchers within 30 days of receipt.

The Fourth Circuit traditionally does not compensate for filing, drafting, and/or serving the notice of appeal as those services are compensated through the district court. The nunc pro tunc date indicated on the CJA 20 is the date the notice of appeal was filed or a date that the court deems relevant to counsel’s appointment, and counsel will be compensated from that date until termination of the representation.

Travel expenses will be reimbursed at the end of the case. Counsel must retain detailed receipts of all authorized travel expenses for reimbursement on the voucher submitted at the conclusion of the case.

Reimbursement for overnight travel, other than for oral argument, will be made only if counsel obtained leave of court before incurring the expense. If counsel is unable to conduct the necessary exchange with his client over the phone and through correspondence, counsel may file a CJA Authorization Request Form -Travel that must contain the estimated cost, i.e., compensation (include travel and interview time) and expenses (estimated airfare, mileage, car rental, lodging, meals, etc.). Allowable time for travel includes only those hours actually spent in or awaiting transit.

The court reimburses court-appointed counsel on counsel's final voucher for travel to attend oral argument. Plane or train travel may be arranged through National Travel Service at government rates, and the court will pay National Travel Service directly for counsel's ticket. Associates or partners will not be reimbursed for travel with court-appointed counsel. If the court has granted a motion for non-appointed co-counsel to argue the case in lieu of appointed counsel, the court will reimburse associate counsel's travel expenses only.

Court-appointed counsel can transmit this court's order of appointment and the oral argument notification to the hotel for proof that counsel will be on government business. (In some situations the government rates are simply not available as the block of rooms the hotel reserves for government rates have already been filled.)

Contact information for interpreters and translators may be obtained from the district court or through online databases maintained by the National Association of Judiciary Interpreters and Translators  and by the American Translators Association . Current federal court interpreter rates and classifications are available at this link: Federal Court Interpreters | United States Courts (uscourts.gov) . Counsel may use Language Skilled, Professionally Qualified, or Federally Certified Court Interpreters for services provided on appeal. Translators are paid at a rate not in excess of $180 per 1,000 words. If the cost of interpreter or translator services will exceed $900 for the appeal, counsel must submit an expert authorization request through CJA eVoucher, setting forth the estimated cost of necessary interpreter or translator services. If the cost of interpreter or translator services is less than $900 for the appeal, counsel may submit a CJA 21 Voucher without prior authorization, itemizing the interpreter's or translator's services and expenses and attaching a copy of the invoice.

Counsel may claim reimbursement for copying portions of the record for the appellant, up to $300, and for providing appellant with a copy of the briefs and joint appendix. Any copying charges incurred in copying the transcript for appellant other than described above must be pre-approved by order of this court. A motion to approve additional expenses must include an estimated page count and cost per page, not to exceed 15 cents per page.

DHS and DOJ Announce “Recent Arrivals” Docket Process for More Efficient Immigration Hearings

Justice Department Finalizes Rule to Allow for More Efficient Immigration Judge Dockets

WASHINGTON - Today, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas and Attorney General Merrick B. Garland announced a new Recent Arrivals (RA) Docket process to more expeditiously resolve immigration cases of certain noncitizen single adults who attempt to cross irregularly between ports of entry at the Southwest border.

This effort will allow DHS and DOJ to more swiftly impose consequences, including removal, on those without a legal basis to remain in the United States and to more swiftly grant immigration relief or protections to noncitizens with valid claims. The Justice Department also submitted to the Federal Register a final rule to promote efficient case and docket management in immigration proceedings.

“Today, we are instituting with the Department of Justice a process to accelerate asylum proceedings so that individuals who do not qualify for relief can be removed more quickly and those who do qualify can achieve protection sooner,” said Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas . “This administrative step is no substitute for the sweeping and much-needed changes that the bipartisan Senate bill would deliver, but in the absence of Congressional action we will do what we can to most effectively enforce the law and discourage irregular migration.”

“The Justice Department’s immigration courts are committed to the just and efficient enforcement of the immigration laws,” said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland . “These measures will advance that mission by helping to ensure that immigration cases are adjudicated promptly and fairly.”

In our current, overwhelmed immigration system, noncitizens arriving at the U.S. Southwest border often wait years before receiving a final decision in an immigration court proceeding. Insufficient resources, including insufficient immigration judges and attorneys, has impeded the swift resolution of claims, and extended the length of the immigration court process.

Under the RA Docket process, DHS will place certain noncitizen single adults on the RA Docket, and EOIR adjudicators will prioritize the adjudication of these cases. The RA Docket will operate in five cities: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York City. Immigration judges will aim to render final decisions within 180 days, though the time to decision in any particular case will remain subject to case-specific circumstances and procedural protections, including allowing time for noncitizens to seek representation where needed.

In order to support these efforts, today the Justice Department also submitted to the Federal Register a final rule titled Efficient Case and Docket Management in Immigration Proceedings. The rule codifies procedures and standards for immigration adjudicators across the country to manage their dockets and resolve cases efficiently. The rule allows adjudicators to prioritize cases that are ready to be resolved promptly, enabling them to address their caseloads more efficiently and quickly. This rule is an important step the Justice Department is taking to promote the efficient, expeditious, and fair adjudication of immigration cases, allocate limited resources more efficiently, and ensure procedural protections for parties in immigration court.

Lastly, the Departments continue to call on Congress to take up and pass the Senate’s bipartisan border security legislation, which if passed would provide DHS and DOJ with additional authorities and resources that are critically needed. These resources include more immigration judges, additional asylum officers and support staff, and needed authorities to more quickly adjudicate asylum cases of those arriving at our border, including by granting protection to those with valid claims, and removing those without a lawful basis to remain. Congress should take up and pass this legislation to fix our broken immigration system.

US airlines are suing the Biden administration over a new rule to make certain fees easier to spot

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. airlines are suing to block the Biden administration from requiring greater transparency over fees that the carriers charge their passengers, saying that a new rule would confuse consumers by giving them too much information during the ticket-buying process.

The U.S. Transportation Department said Monday it will vigorously defend the rule against what it called “hidden junk fees.”

American, Delta, United and three other carriers, along with their industry trade group, sued the Transportation Department in a federal appeals court on Friday, asking the court to overturn the rule.

The trade group, Airlines for America, said the Transportation Department is going beyond its authority by attempting “to regulate private business operations in a thriving marketplace.” The airlines said the administration hasn’t shown that consumers can’t get information about fees already.

“Airlines go to great lengths to make their customers knowledgeable about these fees,” Airlines for America said Monday. “The ancillary fee rule by the Department of Transportation will greatly confuse consumers who will be inundated with information that will only serve to complicate the buying process.”

The Transportation Department announced the new rule on April 24. It would require airlines and travel agents to disclose upfront any charges for baggage and canceling or changing a reservation. Airlines must show the fees on the first website page where they quote a price for a flight.

The agency estimated that the rule will save consumers more than $500 million a year.

“We will vigorously defend our rule protecting people from hidden junk fees and ensuring travelers can see the full price of a flight before they purchase a ticket. Many air travelers will be disappointed to learn that the airline lobby is suing to stop these common-sense protections,” the department said Monday.

Among the nation’s six biggest airlines, only Southwest did not join the legal challenge, which was filed in the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. Southwest said the rule will have little to no effect on it because the Dallas-based carrier lets passengers check two bags for free and has never charged extra fees for changing or canceling reservations.

“Overall, we support every airline’s right to price its products but believe fees should be clearly and consistently disclosed, so consumers can make informed purchasing decisions,” Southwest said.
