ATTORNEYS – WHAT to PROVIDE the COURT REPORTER FOR HEARINGS or a TRIAL

Court reporters prepare for hearings and trials building their dictionaries with specific names and subject matter.  Before getting into the courtroom, a court reporter
will have created their caption and appearance page. To build their steno dictionary and create abbreviations for names, phrases, and subject matter that is unique to a
case, the court reporter would be need to receive any or all of the following documents:

1. Joint Exhibits list

2. Witness list

3. Job dictionary from court reporter(s) who reported the depositions in a case

4. List of case citations (hearings)

5. Points and Authorities (searchable pdf)

6. Motions in limine (searchable pdf)

7. Trial briefs (searchable pdf)

If the court reporter is providing realtime to the judge and/or any parties, having the steno dictionary that is specific to the case is imperative for clean realtime transcripts.
