Deadline to Take Part in TBA Survey on Indigent Representation is Friday

The Tennessee Bar Association is soliciting the comments of all Tennessee-licensed attorneys who represent the indigent under Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 13. In the state budget for the 2018-19 fiscal year, which begins July 1, the Tennessee General Assembly appropriated $9.7 million in additional recurring funding to compensate Tennessee lawyers for representing the indigent under Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 13. On May 25, the Court issued an order soliciting public input on amending Rule 13 to adjust the hourly rates and per-case caps for this work. The TBA intends to provide comments. If you handle matter for which you are compensated by the state under Supreme Court Rule 13, please provide us your comments here before June 8.
