Official Electronic Recording or Transcript

In some limited civil cases, the trial court proceedings may have been officially recorded on approved electronic recording equipment (this option is not available in unlimited civil cases). In these limited civil cases, you can choose to have a transcript prepared from the official electronic recording of these proceedings, or if the local rules allow this and all the parties agree, you can use the electronic recording itself.

There is a fee for getting a copy of an official electronic recording or for preparing a transcript from such a recording.

Read rule 8.835 of the California Rules of Court and the Information on Appeal Procedures for Limited Civil Cases (Form APP-101-INFO) for more information on official electronic recordings or transcripts of these recordings.
