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 10:00 am. 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.
All CJA attorneys will be responsible for making arrangements with another attorney who is on the rotation schedule, if you are not able to make it to court on a specific day or will be unavailable during your duty week. Please send us an email at email@example.com or call us at (575) 528-1435 to let us know who will be covering for you. This will help us make a note of which attorney will be on duty when there is a change to the posted schedule.
Please contact Alonzo Medina (Case Management Supervisor), if you have any questions regarding the duty schedule.
