Court Reporter – Designating Portions Of Deposition Transcripts As Confidential


Court reporters have to be able to create CONFIDENTIAL and ATTOREYS’ EYES ONLY transcripts for attorneys when requested. This morning I am getting out an expedited CONFIDENTIAL deposition transcript that includes portions that are ATTORNEYS’ EYES ONLY that was videotaped. Our firm requires court reporters to turn in a transcript with timecodes and a transcript without timecodes when the deposition is videotaped. Culling out the ATTORNEYS’ EYES ONLY PORTION makes the process complicated.

Here is how I create the confidential/AEO transcripts:

1. Where the non-confidential/AEO transcript ends, I put in a parenthetical: (Non-Confidential portion of transcript ends.)

2. Leave the rest of the page blank with double slashes // on the last line of the page.

3. Go to the new page and put in a date line.

(sample date line: APRIL 15, 2011 FRIDAY 9:34 A.M. SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA (centered)

4. At the end of the confidential portion, put inparenthetical (Confidential portion of the transcript ends.)
