D.C. court leaders, in the midst of one of the most trying times in the court’s history, have asked Congress for nearly $165 million to fund the local judiciary next year.
The request is $30 million more than its current budget and includes $7.8 million for a 12 percent pay raise for its nonjudicial staff, a $8.5 million increase in the program that provides lawyers for indigent defendants, and $1 million to hire 22 new employees. The employees would include seven information technology staffers, law clerks for the appeals court and adoption area, and an attorney for its domestic violence program, among others.
