Covid-19 Ushers in Changes for Court Reporting

Anyone who has been involved in a lawsuit knows the time and expense involved in taking depositions of witnesses. knows that typically you go to a lawyer’s office, the parties and witnesses in the case are asked, under oath, to tell what they know or have seen and their testimony is transcribed by a certified shorthand reporter. It is put in booklet form for later use in court.

Some depositions are videotaped, which adds considerable expenses to the process.


Why is This Important

Depositions are an important fact-finding element of litigation. But they can be a real hassle. Having to drive long distances, fighting traffic, and running up attorney fees even before the depositions begin is part of the problem. And then there are the certified shorthand reporter’s charges which typically run from $1,000 – $2,000 per deposition.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was an easier way of attending a deposition? It would be even nicer if there was a way for a lawyer to file a lawsuit, and take deposition with the understanding that if the case were lost, nothing would be owed to the agency that provided the shorthand reporter, that person being paid by the agency itself.


Thank Covid-19

One of the benefits that have come out of Covid-driven lockdowns is a new way of taking a deposition where the parties, witnesses, and lawyers don’t have to go anywhere. Now a deposition can be taken right from your home. If it is not taken from the home, at the very least it can be taken at the attorney’s office. This is not only convenient, but it can guarantee that the proper actions are taken during a sketchy pandemic situation.
