Rule 312

Temporary Certificate

Section Court Reporters
(a)   Any applicant to take the court reporter examination whose application the Board has approved may submit a request for a temporary certificate to the Office of Judicial Administration. The request must be accompanied by a nonrefundable $50 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 who the personnel officer deems qualified and who has submitted an application to the Office of Judicial Administration. No fee shall be required.

(c)   The temporary certificate will be valid until the next regular or special examination held by the Board, but if such examination is given within 40 days after issuance of a temporary certificate, the reporter may continue to serve under the temporary certificate until the next regular or special examination. No more than one temporary certificate may be issued to the same person except upon the Board’s written recommendation.

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

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