To obtain a transcript copy, fill out and sign the Transcript Order Form. Then, either file it electronically into the Court's CM/ECF system using the docketing event "Transcript Request," which is under the Appeals & Transcripts menu option in ECF, or deliver it to the clerk's office. The clerk's office will arrange for transmittal of the tape of the proceedings to a transcriptionist or reporter. The transcriptionist or reporter will contact you to confirm the specifications for the job and to collect a deposit before starting your order. You make all payments to the transcriptionist or reporter and not to the court. The format, delivery schedules, and fee requirements are set forth by U.S. Judicial Conference standards and are listed in the table below at a price per page.
