One of the duties of court reporters working in depositions is the marking of exhibits. It might seem very basic, when an attorney needs an exhibit marked, it is done by the court reporter, and bam – it’s done.
But there is a lot for attorneys to be conscious of as well as court reporters if the ultimate goal is a clean record.
1. When an attorney wants an exhibit marked, she/he needs to hand the exhibit to the reporter and STOP TALKING to allow the reporter to place her/his mark on the original exhibit document.
2. If a court reporter wants to be efficient, and the attorney agrees, the reporter will premark exhibit stickers and allow the attorney to place the stickers on the document.
3. If the attorney is given permission to place the stickers on the document, she/he must first be instructed by the court reporter to place the sticker on the right side of the page (never on the left where the document will be bound with holes punched in it). The exhibit sticker must be, if possible, at least a quarter inch away from the edges to allow the copy machine to “shrink” the page, which happens on all copy machines.
