Transcripts & Redaction

For 90 days after a transcript is filed, it will be viewable at the public terminal in the Clerk’s Office Records Section.  During this 90-day period, a copy of the transcript may be obtained from the court reporter or recorder, and an attorney who obtains the transcript from the court reporter or recorder will be given remote electronic access to the transcript through the CM/ECF system.

Within 5 business days from the date of filing of the transcript, parties may electronically file a Notice of Intent to Redact.  A Request to Redact specifying page and line number of the required redaction(s) shall be filed within 21 days from the filing of the transcript.  Responsibility for redacting rests solely with counsel and the parties.  The Clerk will not review the transcripts for compliance.  After the 90-day period has ended, the transcript will be available through PACER.  If a Notice of Intent to Redact is electronically filed and the request to redact is not filed within the prescribed time period, an Order to Show Cause will be set by the Court.
