Court fees going up next month
As the State's Office of Legislative Research says on its blog,
On July 1, 2012, increased court filing fees for various matters take effect, as a result of PA 12-89. The fee increases include, among other things, a $50 increase in the general civil filing fee (from $300 to $350) and a new $600 fee for filing a motion for admission pro hac vice.Pro Hac Vice motions are filed when a lawyer wants to take part in a case that day.
And it's all for a good cause. As the OLR reports, "70 percent of the revenue from the act’s fee increases will fund legal services for the poor, and the rest will go to the Judicial Branch’s Data Processing Revolving Fund to maintain and improve the branch’s informational processing system."
