Change in Payment of Depositions

December 9, 2013
The Guide, Vol. 7, § 320.40.20(d) was revised to reflect that it is the Department of Justice's responsibility to pay the costs of travel and subsistence expenses for the defendant and the defendant's attorney to attend a deposition requested by the defendant who is unable to bear the deposition expenses. The Department approved this policy change in accordance with the 2002 amendment of Fed. R. Crim P. 15.
