Request for Transcript
A written request must be filed with the court by the requesting party. The request will be processed by the courtroom deputy who is responsible for transcripts for the presiding judge. The transcript will be prepared by J&J Court Transcribers, Inc. after receipt of payment. When the transcript is completed, J&J Court Transcribers, Inc. will email and mail the certified transcript to the requester. The transcript will also be posted on ECF. The court will send an electronic notice to the case participants informing the parties of the availability of the transcript in ECF, how to purchase a copy, and procedures to request redaction of information in the transcript. After a restriction period (generally 90 days unless extended by court order) the redacted version of the transcript will be available for viewing on PACER.
Before filing the request, the requesting party should contact the Courtroom Deputy (CRD) for additional details and to assure coordination of the request. Once the written request is received, the CRD will provide the requestor with the estimated costs for an expedited (7-10 days) or ordinary (up to 30 days) transcript. The CRD will provide the address for the requestor to mail their payment directly to J&J Court Transcribers, Inc. The CRD will prepare all materials and electronically send them to J&J Court Transcribers, Inc.
