Since 1971, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey has maintained a list of attorneys to be appointed as counsel for eligible defendants pursuant to the Criminal Justice Act (“CJA”), 18 U.S.C. §3006A. The Court has adopted a CJA Plan, revised as of December 10, 1997 and effective September 11, 1998, which “particularize(s) the requirements of the CJA, the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988 … and the CJA Guidelines in a way that meets the needs of this district.” In summary, the CJA Plan has established a Panel Selection and Management Committee which meets annually to consider applications for the District’s CJA Panel. The District’s CJA Panel consists of 100 attorneys, divided by Vicinage who are members in good standing of the Bar of this District, and have trial experience and knowledge of the Federal Rules of Criminal and Appellate Procedure, the Federal Rules of Evidence, the Federal Sentencing Guidelines and the Local Rules of both the District and Circuit Courts. The CJA Committee selects the 100 attorneys for the CJA Panel based upon merit and experience.
