Preauthorization Policy Update in the Fifth District

The preauthorization policy in the Fifth District is now the same as the Third District. CCAP is authorized to process travel requests that do not exceed $600 and translator requests that do not exceed $300. For requests not covered by CCAP's preauthorization authority (this includes motions to expand appointment and any extraordinary expenses) such requests should first be sent to CCAP for a recommendation, and CCAP will forward the request and recommendation to the Court.

CCAP's New Line-By-Line Guide for Claims

CCAP's Line-by-Line Guide for Claims (PDF) has been updated following the rollout of the Statewide Claims Manual. Its purpose is to provide instruction regarding the correct claim line placement of services and expenses. The guide also includes court-specific policies for compensation that apply for Third District and Fifth District cases.

Important Practice Note for the Third District

If counsel discovers confidential information in the reporter's or clerk's transcripts that should have been redacted from the record or sealed (Cal. Rules of Court, rule 45(d)(1)), counsel should file a request in the Court of Appeal to redact the confidential information from the record. The request may be made in a letter with a formal proof of service. Counsel should not redact the confidential information from the record himself or herself.
