Transcripts and Audio Recordings
|Transcript Requests - Hearings and Trials|
Transcription Services. The order form provides for selection of one of the court-approved transcription services listed below. The court will select a transcription service if none is indicated on the form. The transcription service will directly file a copy of the transcript with the court.
Rates. Transcript fees are charged per page for the number of copies (the original and any additional copies ordered) and delivery time requested. There is no charge for the copy provided to the court. The maximum rates set by the Judicial Conference of the United States are printed on the reverse side of the transcript request form. Fees must be paid directly to the transcriber in accordance with the payment arrangements made with the transcription service. Delivery times commence on the date that payment arrangements are made.
Restricted Public Access Period and Redaction Requirements. A transcript may be viewed immediately after filing at public computer terminals in the Clerk’s Office. However, to provide time for parties to review a transcript for compliance with the privacy protection provisions of Bankruptcy Rule 9037, a transcript generally will not be made electronically available to the general public via the Internet until at least 90 days after the date the transcript is filed. For more information, see LBR 5077-1.
