|Electronic Reporters' Transcripts
Effective January 1, 2018, a new statute, an amended Rule of Court, and a new First District Miscellaneous Order opened the door to electronic reporters’ transcripts (RTs) in some court-appointed appeals. The statute makes the default form of RTs electronic instead of paper. The miscellaneous order, however, invokes an exception provided for in the statute, deeming defendants in felony appeals to have requested paper copies. Both the statute and the order include other exceptions, including if the court reporter or the Court does not have the capacity to comply.
