ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER NO. 2-9.0

COURT APPOINTED COUNSEL REPRESENTING ADULTS AND JUVENILES

WHEREAS, in Chapter 82-215, the Laws of Florida 1982, the Florida Legislature appropriated certain funds in the state budgets of the Public Defenders to assist the counties in defraying the expenses of court appointed attorney fees in conflict cases, and

WHEREAS, the Comptroller of the State of Florida has specified that a uniform order for payment of attorney fees and costs should be used in conflict cases, therefore it is

ORDERED AND DIRECTED, that to provide uniformity and to speed the process whereby counties are reimbursed for their payments of court appointed fees and costs, the present form order contained in Administrative Orders number 43 and 44 titled "ORDER DISCHARGING ATTORNEY AND AWARDING COMPENSATION" shall be removed and destroyed, and that enclosure 1 to this amendment titled "ORDER FOR PAYMENT OF ATTORNEY FEES AND COSTS" shall replace the removed form order in both administrative orders and be used henceforth in ordering payment in conflict cases.
