Official Court Reporters attend pre-trial Supreme Court Examinations for Discovery as Officers of the Court empowered to administer the oath to the witness and are responsible for creating a verbatim transcript of the proceedings. Court reporters are also hired by lawyers to attend at trial, often providing realtime, which is an instantaneous written stream of the proceedings able to be viewed on the judge’s and lawyers’ screens as the proceedings take place. Court reporters’ services are often engaged to transcribe Supreme Court civil proceedings after the fact as well.
