How Do I Request a Court Reporter’s Transcript?
Requests for Court Reporter Transcripts may be submitted via our online Transcript Request Form. In order to process your request, you will need to include the following information, Case Name, Case Number, Date of Proceedings, Department Number, Name of the Court Reporter, Requesting Party’s Name and Email. After receiving your request, the court reporter will provide you with an estimate of the cost for the transcript. You will then need to make arrangements with the court reporter for payment. Once financial arrangements and payment has been made, the court reporter will prepare the transcript per your request.
How Do I Determine Who the Court Reporter Was for a Proceeding?
You may access your case file which shows the department number and date of every hearing heard in the case through: Court Connect. After determining the date(s) and Department(s) of the desired hearing, go to our Assignment Log. The Assignment Logs will show what Court Reporter was assigned to the Department on the day you are requesting. If the log indicates electronic recording (ER), please see instructions below.
How Long Do Court Reporters Retain Their Notes?
Per Government Code Section 69955(e), and the policy of this Court, with the exception of death penalty cases, the reporter’s shorthand notes for criminal proceedings are only required to be retained for a period of ten (10) years.
