Las Cruces CJA Attorney - Material Witness Duty Schedule

Effective Monday, April 2, 2018

Las Cruces CJA attorneys assigned to the Material Witness Duty Schedule will call the Clerk's Office at (575) 528-1435 starting at 3:30 pm, but no later than 5:00 pm the day before the hearing to inquire if there any material witnesses on the initial presentment docket. For initial presentment dockets scheduled on Monday or after a three day weekend, attorneys will need to call on the morning of the initial presentment docket between the hours of 8:00 am and 8:30am. On Fridays, there may be late add-ons, so attorneys will be required to call again at 8:00 am. The Clerk's Office will be emailing a copy of the initial presentment calendar to all of the CJA attorneys the day before the hearing, which may result in the attorney not having to call everyday. If you are part of the material witness duty schedule but are not receiving the initial calendar via email, please call (575) 528-1435.

All CJA attorneys will be responsible for making arrangements with another attorney who is on the rotation schedule. Please send an email to if you have switched a rotation with another attorney, are not able to make it to court on a specific day or will be unavailable during your duty week.

Please contact if you have any questions regarding the duty schedule.
