Appellate Indigent Defense Oversight Advisory Committee

The Appellate Indigent Defense Oversight Advisory Committee (AIDOAC) provides the Chief Justice and administrative presiding justices with policy recommendations related to the Court-Appointed Counsel (CAC) program; audits court-appointed counsel claims; and provides ongoing review of compensation guidelines. AIDOAC was appointed as a special committee of the Chief Justice in late 1990. Its membership includes one appellate court justice from each of the six appellate districts, two appellate project directors, a civil appellate practitioner, and a criminal appellate practitioner. Advisory members also may be appointed by the Chief Justice.
