Court Reporting Services

Court Reporting means the act of making a verbatim record of court proceedings required to be reported at public expense in Clay, Duval and Nassau counties. The Fourth Judicial Circuit Court Reporting Department is responsible for ensuring proceedings are reported at the highest quality attainable and the record is retained and archived as required by law.  This is accomplished through the use of contract stenographic court reporters and court employed digital court reporters.

Amended Administrative Order No. 09-01 outlines the Circuit-wide Court Reporting Plan for the Fourth Judicial Circuit.

The Court Reporting Department consist of the Court Reporting Services Manager who shall direct and manage the affairs of all court reporting; an Electronic Court Reporting Manager who supervises Digital Court Reporters and manage all aspects of digital court reporting; and 14 full and part-time Digital Court Reporters who continuously monitors what is being recorded to ensure sound quality and voice clarity.

The Fourth Judicial Circuit enters into an annual contract with an independent contractor for the provision of certified personnel to conduct live, in-court reporting services including transcription services.

  • It is the responsibility of the party or the party’s attorney to secure court reporting services for proceedings held in the Circuit Civil Division, County Civil Division (including Civil Traffic and Small Claims), or the Family Division (except for proceedings in which the Court is required to provide a record at public expense).
Transcripts and Audio Recordings:
  • An individual may order a written transcript of any reported or recorded proceeding or may order an audio recording of any recorded proceeding unless such proceeding is deemed confidential.
  • To purchase written transcripts, please contact Official Reporters, Inc., at (904) 358-2090.
