Rules Adopted by the State Board of Examiners of Court Reporters

Temporary Certificate

(a) Any applicant to take the court reporter examination whose application to sit has been approved by the State Board of Examiners of Court Reporters may file with the Clerk of the Appellate Courts a request for a temporary certificate, accompanied by a nonrefundable $50 filing fee.

(b) A temporary certificate may be issued to an official court reporter only if recruitment efforts in a particular county have been unsuccessful and the personnel officer requests the Supreme Court to issue a temporary certificate to a person the personnel officer deems qualified and who has an application on file with the Clerk of the Appellate Courts. No filing fee shall be required.

(c) The temporary certificate shall be valid until the next regular or special examination held by the Board of Examiners, but if such examination is given within forty days after issuance of a temporary certificate, the candidate may continue to serve under the temporary certificate until the next regular or special examination. No more than one temporary certificate shall be issued to the same person except upon the written recommendation of the State Board of Examiners of Court Reporters.

(d) Any reporter working under a temporary certificate shall have in place a tape back-up for any proceedings taken.

(e) A transcript certified by a reporter working under a temporary certificate shall have the same effect as one certified by a regularly licensed court reporter.
