Warning! New Year, Old Juror Scam
Posted: 6/18/2015

You've received a warrant by fax or email saying a federal law enforcement officer or an attorney for the government wants to arrest you. Charges may be for money laundering or bank fraud, or missed jury duty. To avoid arrest, the warrant says, send money.

It's a scam!

CJA eVoucher
Posted: 4/1/2015

The U.S. District Court, Western District of Texas has begun taking steps to implement CJA eVoucher, the Judiciary's national electronic CJA voucher processing system. CJA eVoucher will change the way vouchers are processed in this district by eliminating paper and manual processes. Instead, attorneys, expert service providers & court reporters will be able to electronically submit vouchers to the court for review, audit and payment processing. For more information on this national Judiciary system please refer to the 2014 article posted on the website.

Be on the lookout for future announcements regarding the implementation of this exciting new system!

San Antonio Attorneys and Visitors
Posted: 8/28/2015   New!

Recently the John H. Wood, Jr. United States Courthouse experienced a water line break that resulted in extensive damage to several areas within the courthouse. In order to ensure the safety of all who work in and visit the courthouse we retained the services of a specialist to collect and test water samples.

This private entity found that the water in some (but not all) water fountains and water faucets in the building contained unacceptable levels of lead and bacteria. These tests were shared with our landlord, the General Services Administration (GSA). GSA then contacted the Federal Occupational Health (FOH) agency. The FOH collected and tested their own samples and confirmed that some (but not all) water fountains and water faucets have unsafe levels of lead in the water. Those water fountains and faucets have now been removed from service.

Additional testing will be conducted to determine the source(s) of the problem and what, if any, actions can be taken to remedy this situation. In the interim, members of the bar may bring their own water bottles into the Courthouse. To assist the Marshal's Office with security issues, please bring only clear plastic bottles.

We will provide updated information when available.

Attorney Renewal Fees have been suspended.
Posted: 1/1/2013

The Attorney Renewal Fee requirement has been suspended until further notice.  There is no requirement, at this time, to send in the renewal fee to the U.S. District Clerk's Office.
