If the total compensation claimed by an attorney in a non-capital case is in excess of the statutory case compensation maximum, the voucher must be supplemented with a detailed memorandum supporting and justifying counsel's claim that the representation given was in an extended or complex case, and that excess compensation is necessary to provide fair compensation. The Form CJA 26 (district court)/Form CJA 27 (court of appeals) may be used.
