Court Reporter Coverage

Due to budgetary constraints, effective November 21, 2016, court reporters will be provided in criminal, juvenile and LPS conservatorship cases only.  Court reporters will not be provided in any civil or family law matters, including DV matters.  Parties desiring a court reporter for civil or family law hearings should make arrangements for a pro tem reporter.  If you need assistance in obtaining a court-approved list of pro tem reporters, contact the supervising court reporter at (805) 781-1132.  Please see local rule of court 18.00(c).  Counsel should expect to be prepared for trial on the assigned date.
