Deposition Reporters

deposition reporters
A deposition reporter is often misconceived as someone who simply records what is said during depositions or court hearings for the sake of legal records. In addition to recording depositions for archival purposes, a deposition reporter also plays a vital role in allowing judges and attorneys to review a deposition speech during the course of a trial and before a trial begins. Because every word of a deposition could be critical to a court case, deposition reporters have an unusual demand for clarity and accuracy placed upon their shoulders at all times. In addition to recording depositions, deposition reporters may also record the speech of legal proceedings, corporate meetings, political meetings and other events that demand a legal record of what was said during the event’s minutes. Whether employed by the court or an independent litigation services provider, deposition reporters typically use one of three recording methods: stenographic, electronic or voice writing.

Stenographic Reporting
Stenographic reporting is the most common method of court reporting. Using a stenotype machine, reporters record the speech of official proceedings by pressing multiple keys at once to record letter combinations that signify phrases, words or sounds. The stenotype symbols are then translated into text by a process known as computer-aided transcription. In court proceedings where real-time reporting is desired, the stenotype machine is connected to computers that translate and transmit speech during a live proceeding. Independent legal services providers often offer real time reporting of legal proceedings by employing real-time reporting proficient reporters.

Electronic Recording
In electronic recording, audio equipment is used to directly record the speech of court proceedings. As the proceeding is recorded, the reporter monitors the recording process, making notes that identify speakers and listening carefully to ensure that the equipment is recording the proceeding with high sound quality. Electronic reporters may use either analogue or digital recording equipment, and are often required to produce a written transcript of the proceeding at its conclusion.

Voice Writing Recording
Voice writing recording is used to record the actual words of court participants as they speak them. In order to keep up with the flow of speech, a voice writing reporter speaks into a voice silencer; a hand-held mask device that contains a small microphone and prevents the recorder’s voice from being heard by the courtroom. In addition to recording what is said by witnesses, attorneys and judges and other parties to a court proceeding, voice writing reporters also make note of histrionic gestures and noticeable emotional reactions. As with electronic reporters, voice writing reporters are generally required to produce a written transcript of a proceeding based on the voice recording. To request a certain kind of deposition reporter or to review a proceeding through a particular reporting style, judges and attorneys often consult with independent legal services providers.

Litigation Support

litigation support

Have you heard of litigation support services? This is a litigation service which helps lawyers present a better case. The better your case the better chance you have to win. Many cases do not get to the trial stage. They are negotiated before trial and both parties agree to a settlement. Or there are cases that are settled in conflict resolution settings. But you have to be ready for trials that do go to trial.

Who can say why the public is fascinated by jury trials? Movies and television depict them as high drama. We see the wrongly accused being defended by the courageous truth seeking trial lawyer who only wants to find out the truth. The lawyer backs the diffident witness into a corner and she is able to squeeze out the fact that the witness is trying to protect a friend who was the real criminal in all of this. The witness breaks down in tears and the wrongly accused is free thanks to his lawyers tenacity and quest for justice.

In today’s jury trial members of the jury are more likely to be swayed by video evidence verses oral testimony. Part of how litigation support services can help you present your case is to build your video evidence. If you are representing a client who has suffered personal injury from a car accident you can use a video reconstruction of the accident to show the jury.

Let us face reality the modern jury is made up of people who watch television, who like movies with special effects, and who go to the internet and watch videos demonstrating everything from how to install a dishwasher to how to cook lasagna. People, even members of juries want to see a video. Litigation support services have experts in video creation.

If you have a medical malpractice case litigation support services can create an animated video demonstrating the medical procedure in question. When the jury sees your video on how the procedure was supposed to have been performed you can better present your case on what did or did not go wrong with the procedure. Litigation support services can also provide you with the most experienced and qualified legal experts to help prove your case.

You might need an expert witness to support your case. But many experts while doing well on direct examination sink under cross examination. You can look to litigation support services for the best qualified and most trial experienced expert witnesses to hold fast under tough cross examination.

Some in the legal field think that if they have a video camera they can record their own depositions. Then they realize that they have no audio on their recording. Before this happens to you spend the money and look for a litigation support service to do all your video recording you will need to make your case air tight. Some services even keep back up tapes in case you lose the one you are taking to court.

You need in this day and age of complicated litigation a litigation support service you can trust and count on.

Court Depositions

court depositions
Has anyone ever given a court deposition?

I have a lawsuit against my former employer for wrongful termination/whistle blower. I need to give a deposition next week in front of several persons including opposing counsel. Anyone ever done this before…how is it? Thanks
I meet with my attorney before I take it. I believe all my answers are typed up.

No big deal. Just answer yes or no. do not elaborate. Surprised your attorney has not covered this. It is a casual proceeding. Pay attention because the questions become so convoluted you will have no idea what the lawyer is asking. In that instance just say so.

Court Reporters

court reporters

For many years, the most technologically advanced in the court files was the shorthand machine. A result of modern typewriter, this “mechanical Wonder” allowed court reporters to transcribe even the fastest speaker accurately. And while the general population of business became more and more computerized technology in the courtroom remained relatively unchanged.

But in the last decade things have changed.

Currently, only one aspect of the rights of a court reporter has not been improved computer technology. Let’s look at some of these developments and how they are helping lawyers enjoy a better end product and make life reporter easier that way.

Computer Indexing
In the past, a court reporter could compile a written record of a hearing or deposition and report form for your customer. A person, usually a paralegal, you would go through the document at hand and highlight relevant passages, or search for hours in an attempt to find a reference to a person, place or thing.

Today, computer indexing gives the court reporter can order any transcription by keyword or phrase. These documents come through “soft copy” to the office of the law and are already marked by the client, specific mention of an event or anything that the lawyer needs to make better use of the document.

Video Court Reporting
It seems like yesterday that video recorders devices are large, clumsy, which took two people to handle. Now that VCRs have been reduced in size, with improved quality, more and more services court reports are used to provide a video recording of depositions, trials and other important procedures. In addition, the ability to create digital copies of these events makes them much easier to email or burn it to disc copying and distribution.

The Internet
The choice a court reporter has also become easier as a result of computer technology. Thanks to the Internet, lawyers can now find its reporter of the court with the click of a mouse. Many companies reporting the highest court in the country support and offer online booking services that make a reporter easier than ever.

Text Type of Technology
An interesting development in computer technology has been the voice to text software is making the rounds in law firms and court reporting services throughout the country. This software allows a person speaking into a microphone, and automatically incorporated words in a word processing document. The process is not perfect, but gives individuals a head start in the transcription process. For information and impeccable work transcription but a live person is still the best, most cost-efficient way of doing things.

Will technology make the reporter court obsolete?

New technologies that have entered the court of world reports only serve to improve human activity. The fact is that there will always be a need for the human element in judicial information. Understanding the flow of dialogue, soft-spoken words and emphasis are all things that man is doing better than a machine.
