Extraordinary Litigation Fund - The ELF
The Public Defense Commission (PDC) is excited to announce the implementation of policies and procedures for defending attorneys to make application for monies for extraordinary litigation costs pursuant to Idaho Code §19-850(2)(e). The policy and application are now available for review and submission to the PDC.
Monies in the Extraordinary Litigation Fund (ELF) are available to the counties via their chosen Indigent Defense Provider who determines that a case requires extraordinary expenses that are likely to cause a financial hardship for the county within which they practice. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but are subject to the availability of funds. An ELF application should be submitted as soon as a defending attorney anticipates that costs will qualify as extraordinary under the policy.
The policy regarding ELF monies is that they are to be used for prospective costs only.
Before submitting an application, a defending attorney shall review the policy and procedures for the ELF.
