Cancellation Policy

In conformity with Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts guidelines and local practice, interpreters for any court proceeding should be canceled with a minimum of 24 hours' notice to the Interpreters Office.

If the Interpreters Office is not notified by the court of the cancellation at least 24 hours prior to the start of an assignment, the interpreter shall be paid compensation for the amount of time (half day or full day) originally scheduled, unless the interpreter has acquired another assignment for the same time period.  

CJA attorneys who schedule interpreters for client consultations and then cancel with less than 24 hours' notice to the interpreter are subject to the same cancellation policy.
