Chapter IX. Authorization and Voucher for Payment of Transcript

You are here

To order a transcript, follow these procedures.

  1. Complete items 1 - 11 on the CJA 24 voucher.
  2. Forward the completed voucher to the presiding district judge for signature.

The judge's chambers will forward the signed voucher to the appropriate court reporter for preparation of the transcript. The court reporter will complete information on the voucher (items 15 - 21) and prepare an original and one copy of the transcript. The court reporter will then file the original transcript in the Clerk's Office and forward a copy of the transcript and CJA 24 voucher to you for signature. You must sign the CJA 24 voucher (item 22) and return it to the court reporter.

In multi-defendant cases, only one transcript should be purchased from the court reporter on behalf of CJA defendants. One of the appointed counsel or clerk of court should arrange for duplication, at commercially competitive rates, of enough copies of the transcript for each CJA defendant for whom a transcript has been approved. The cost of duplication will be charged to the CJA appropriation. This policy does not preclude the court reporter from providing copies at a commercially competitive rate.
