Any party for whom counsel has been assigned
shall bear the cost of any expenses of the litigation or appeal to the extent
reasonably feasible in light of the party’s financial condition. Such
expenses shall include, but not be limited to discovery expenses, subpoena and
witness fees, and transcript expenses. Assigned counsel or the firm with which
counsel is affiliated may advance part or all of the payment of any such
expenses without requiring that the party remain ultimately liable for
such expenses, except out of the proceeds of any recovery. The assigned
attorney or firm is not required to advance the payment of such expenses.
Expenses incurred by counsel assigned pursuant
to LR83.36 or the firm with
which counsel is affiliated may be reimbursed from the District Court Fund in
accordance with the provisions of the Regulations Governing the Reimbursement
of Expenses in Pro Bono Cases.
The Clerk will provide copies of the Regulations and the Plan for the Administration of the District
Court Fund on request.
