Court Reporting System (CRS)

The Court Reporting System (CRS) provides electronic archival and retrieval services for transcripts produced by court reporters. ASCII disks that contain completed transcripts are brought to the Record Reproduction Center, date stamped by the staff, and given to the CRS Technicians. The CRS Technicians place the notes of testimony on the CRS system, which is a central transcript storage server. This server is accessible by judges, assistant district attorneys and public defenders who can easily retrieve and print completed transcripts from their own offices. They or their staff may also save copies to utilize for drafting opinions.
