New Rule 35 - Clerk's Fees and Charges
Submitted by the Access to Justice Board
This rule is intended to promote broader access to justice for people lacking the financial means to pay initial filing fees and other litigation fees and charges. Fees and charges that prevent courts from considering meritorious cases effectively bar justice to the indigent. This rule is intended to ensure that only those fees and charges that have been specifically authorized by statute or the Supreme Court will be assessed as a prerequisite to access to the judicial process.
