Court Reporters

The services of the court reporter include making a verbatim record of most court proceedings, preparing transcripts of the verbatim record at the request of a party or the Court, and maintaining all exhibits.

Transcript Requests


Advance deposits toward the cost of a transcript may be requested at the discretion of the reporter. Payment(s) by either check or cash shall be arranged at the time a transcript is ordered and must be paid in full before the transcript is released or filed. Copies of a transcript are only available once an original transcript has been purchased. Costs of copies vary depending on who requested the original and who is requesting the copy.

Exhibits

The Court Reporters are the custodians of any exhibit submitted during a court proceeding and retain them until the conclusion of litigation. All parties are hereby notified that exhibits not retrieved will be destroyed sixty (60) days after litigation has concluded. Parties interested in retrieving their own exhibits after the conclusion of the case should contact the Court Reporter's Office to determine eligibility.
