Update on Payments to Court-Appointed Appellate Counsel: Claims Transmitted to AOC on Friday, June 19, and Received by the AOC on Monday, June 22, Included Among Those to be Paid by Warrant.
Today, July 2, 2009, Marcia Taylor of the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) emailed the Projects with updated information about the status of payments for court-appointed appellate counsel:
Addendum from the appellate projects:
All the claims "submitted during the week of June 22" does not refer to when the claims were "submitted" by the panel attorneys to the projects or even when the claims were "transmitted" to the AOC by the projects. Rather, it refers to when the AOC would have transmitted the claims to the SCO. Thus, claims transmitted from the projects to the AOC on Friday night, June 19, and received by the AOC on Monday morning, June 22, would be included among those to be paid by warrant under this new timeline.
In light of the many recent changes, what payments will ultimately be made by check and what by warrant, as well as which banks and credit unions may cash the warrants, and when, all remain unpredictable at this time. The latest internet article we have found regarding payments by warrants and which institutions are accepting them, is from this morning's San Francisco Chronicle here, which has a question and answer section. :
We will continue to pass on any information we receive during this difficult period.
