TRAVEL AUTHORIZATION ONLY:                             (415) 355-7993

 

Effective immediately counsel appointed under the Criminal Justice Act must purchase airline tickets through National Travel Service. Airfare ordinarily will not be reimbursable on CJA vouchers. An account has been set up to allow appointed counsel to use government rates for airline travel. The airline tickets are fully refundable and allow for flexibility in air travel at a lower cost. The Court will pay for the airline ticket directly with no initial outlay by counsel. Upon determining that air travel is required, please call the Clerk's Office IMMEDIATELY at (415) 355-7993 to receive your written travel authorization and further instructions.
