Guardianship of the record of courtroom proceedings is a key and historic responsibility of the court. Each court session and proceeding designated by statute, court rule, general order, or by order of an individual judge is recorded verbatim by stenotype or electronic sound recording equipment.
The court reporters and court recorders play a significant role in ensuring the integrity and accuracy of the record. All stenotype reporters in the Eastern District of Louisiana are certified court reporters. Most are certified realtime reporters.
A written transcript of court proceedings is produced upon the request of a party. Please refer to the links on the left side of the screen under this heading for further information.
