Los Angeles Superior Court: New Court Reporter Availability
Due to state budget cuts, the reduction of court reporters is one of the areas that will be affected in Los Angeles Superior Courts. Effective May 15, 2012, there will be no more official court reporters available for civil trials, but official court reporters will normally be available for general jurisdiction morning calendar matters until June 15, 2012.
Parties have the ability to arrange to hire personal certified shorthand reporters to be the official court reporter where an official court reporter is not normally unavailable by stipulation and order. You can obtain the Court Approved Stipulation and order form post in the LASC website and available in the clerk’s office.
Also, parties have the ability to privately hire a court reporter through the Court approved official court reporter list without a stipulation. The names and contact information for the list of Court approved reporters will be available on or about July 1, 2012.
