GAO held that: (1) payments made under the continuing resolution may be properly charged to the defender services appropriation; (2) federal payments and defender services appropriations were available to pay for prior years obligations; and (3) the Courts would not violate the Antideficiency Act by incurring additional obligations after the defender services appropriation was exhausted."
