California Government Code

Sec. § 68511.5


Not later than January 1, 1985, the Judicial Council shall adopt rules of court regulating the selection of appointed counsel, other than the State Public Defender, to handle criminal appeals by indigent defendants. These rules shall establish procedures for the appointment of counsel in all appellate districts. In developing these rules, the Judicial Council shall consider the need to include screening of eligible appointees, the need to match the skills and experience of the attorney with the demands of the case and the process by which this might be done, and the need or desirability of evaluating an attorney’s performance before assigning the attorney to another case. Further, in developing these rules, the Judicial Council shall consult with local bar associations and the Office of the State Public Defender.
