Hearings, trials and other court proceedings are digitally recorded by the court. A party may request an audio file of a recording by submitting a request form to the court. Written transcripts may be ordered directly from the transcriber. Instructions for both requests are detailed below.
REQUEST FOR WRITTEN TRANSCRIPT
Orders for written transcripts are submitted to, and processed by, the transcriber (not the court). Follow the instructions below to order a written transcript.

If several proceedings were held on the date of your request, use the notes section of the form to provide additional information such as the name of the matter(s) heard and the corresponding docket number(s).
- The transcriber will contact the court to obtain the audio recording needed to produce the written transcript.
