Record of Court Proceedings
You may order a transcript or CD from a hearing before a Circuit Court judge.
All proceedings before the court are recorded--by a Court Reporter or electronically
Transcripts of proceedings in the Circuit Court are available only through an official Court Reporter.
The cost of transcripts depends on the type of record and the number of pages in the final typed transcript.
If the proceeding was recorded by a digital audio recording (no court reporter present), you may order an audio CD.
