Court reporting…

court reportersI have talked about my love for court shows, mystery shows, and true crime time and time again on this blog.  As such, it should come as no surprise that I am presently following the Roger Clemens’ case, especially given my love for baseball and the Red Sox (he played for the Red Sox in the 1980′s and 1990′s).  However, I noticed something interesting as I was watching coverage of his perjury trial on the 5pm local news last night.

The segment on the news which I watching was composed of information from a court reporter and from a courtroom artist (with paintings!).  In this era of TruTV, YouTube,  and 24 hours news, being a court reporter must be a very big responsibility.  They are responsible for recording the information.  Of course, they are no longer the stenographer than you see on Perry Mason,  nowadays, they get their court reporters (which is now a very skilled profession) from an agency.  The agencies have the ability to keep depositions in the cloud, schedule remotely and can find their clients experts to report in their field.  Now when I am watching TruTV, I am so looking for the court reporter and wonder what their skills are.

A lot of how court reporters work is still old school, especiaally for depos. But it’s nice to take advantage . Some agencies use iPads that have the special keyboards. But every reporter is different.
