An interim claim is usually submitted after the Appellant's Opening Brief is filed, or it may be filed at a later stage.
In extremely long-record cases (7,500 pages or more), advance arrangement seeking approval of both CCAP administration and the AOC can be made to file more than one interim — usually at a specified point, such as completion of record review. Other exceptions may be made only through advance arrangement — for example, attorney hardship for health reasons. Please call CCAP to make the arrangement.
Interims that are approved for submission prior to the filing of the opening brief may include time spent for motions, client communication time, and record review time.
Counsel who substitute into a case after the opening brief was already filed should normally file only a final claim.
