Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!
Unlike federal court, there is no automatic right to a copy. Each party pays for a copy. Practically, the video is often provided by e-mail by downloadable file and then share for free with all parties, similar to paper transcripts, but technically the reporting agency is right, which obviously also want each party to buy it so it makes more in fees.
I practice in NJ.
Kindly rate me positively.
The rule has not changed but the rule is silent on cost, and similar to providing documents where one can charges for copies, one can charge for the recording, but that cost would be nominal.
The cost to a party is a minor and quite different than a reporter charging.
The reporter wants you to get it from them, which is not required at all.
Yes, but doesnt say without costs. Again, the cost of a copy is probably a few dollars.
Not reporter's copy fees which are often closer to $1000
That is correct, the ordering lawyer has to pay for it.
The rule applies to the parties and does not address your right to payment or relations between you and party.
The party who ordered it, has responsibility to make arrangements so that everyne in the case gets a copy.
You too. Kindly rate me 5 stars.
