Court Reporter transcripts, while public record, are not made part of the court file. They are the property of the court reporter and must be requested directly from the court reporter for a fee. The court reporters set the timeline on when requests from members of the public will be filled. Pierce County Superior Court does not utilize digital court recording equipment in our trial courtrooms. There have been digital court recordings of one proceeding in this high-profile trial. The original arraignment was recorded in Courtroom 270 which is our high-volume criminal arraignment courtroom and does not use a court reporter. A recording of that proceeding can be requested through the Pierce County Superior Court Clerk’s Office for a fee.
