In the July, 1996, issue of PLN we reported Prison Litigation Reform Act Passed. On page three we incorrectly stated that the PLRA limits attorney fees to $40 an hour for out of court work. The PLRA limits attorney fee recovery to 150% of the amount set in 18 U.S.C. § 3006A. So the actual amount would be $62.50 for out of court work.
