Specifically, the Judicial Council has created the Court Cost/Fee Committee, chaired by Fifth Circuit Court of Appeal Judge Thomas F. Daly, to develop draft guidelines and an application for the Council's approval, and to review and evaluate requests submitted in accordance with the adopted guidelines and applications prior to their consideration by the Council.

The Court Cost/Fee Committee will conduct a public hearing on Wednesday, December 10, 2003 at the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeal, 101 Derbigny Street, Courtroom A, Gretna, Louisiana from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Anyone interested in the Judicial Council's new process or wishing to make comments or ask questions regarding the draft guidelines, application form, deadline for submitting requests, or other aspects of the process is invited to attend and participate at the hearing.

After the hearing and the Court Cost/Fee Committee's consideration of the public's comments, the final adopted guidelines and application form will be available to the public by e-mail, fax, mail or on the Louisiana Supreme Court's web site at the following addresses: e-mail: mailto:tjg@lajao.org; FAX: Attention Judicial Council (504) 568-5687; MAIL: Attention Judicial Council, Judicial Administrator's Office, 1555 Poydras Street, Suite 1540, New Orleans, LA 70112; web site: www.lasc.org .
