2 responses to court reporter shortages in Oklahoma, Arizona show disconnect

This screen grab from Fox 23 shows the current number of court reporters in Oklahoma, down 200 from the past.

Recent news reports illustrate two responses to court reporter shortages.

In the meantime, fewer cases are being tried because of it. 

Here's a link to the video.

Tulsa County Court Administrator Vicki Cox says backlogged cases aren’t something they keep a count on. However, she did state that officials have noticed the shortage of court reporters, and it’s becoming a problem.

The solution? An emphasis on enrolling more students to train as court reporters.

In Arizona, digital the solution and the problem are hard to differentiate.

Now it's harder to find court reporters a county superior court judge says. Hmm. Could there be a connection?

“They no longer need to be in the courtroom as long as a record is made,” the county court clerk says.

Drawing on images of “Perry Mason,” the San Gabriel Valley Tribune in California writes about the growing demand for court reporters.

“The court reporter would invariably pause, tilt her head and raise an eyebrow when a particularly juicy detail surfaced.”

Whether or not that image resonates, it’s true that the demand for court reporters is expected to lead to a shortage and California. The data is based on the 2013-14 Court Reporting Industry Outlook Report.

The report says that by 2018 there will be 5,500 new court reporter jobs available in the U.S., and California will lead the way with a projected 2,320 job openings.

Challenge of Arizona court reporting statute that impacts national, regional court reporting firms could have impact in other jurisdictions

Huseby is watching with interest a lawsuit filed by Magna Legal Services against the Arizona Board of Certified Reporters that claims court reporting regulations amended by the state in 2011 are unconstitutional.

According to the complaint, Arizona adopted court reporting regulations that end or limit multi-case contracts typically used by national and regional court reporting companies.

Although the Arizona state statute is being challenged, the case is in federal court and will be compelling for other jurisdictions.

In 2003, all Arizona court reporters were required by law to be certified by the board. In 2011, the requirements were amended in a way that Magna claims prevent the application of multi-case contracts in Arizona, which led to Magna’s lawsuit.

The Arizona Board of Certified Reporters supported the regulations because it says multi-case contracts lower prices of court reporting and other services and allow national and regional court reporting companies to provide services in a way that harms the public and local reporting companies.

Magna says in the complaint it's the regulations that “injure consumers and the public at large.”

In the complaint, Magna says prohibitions against mult-case contracts “injure consumers and the public ... because they impermissibly burden interstate and out-of-state commerce without advancing a legitimate local need.” As a result, the complaint says the regulations violate the commerce clause of the United States Constitution.

The complaint also says the regulations “discriminate between consumers of court reporting services and court reporters in similar circumstances,” and as a result the regulations offend the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

The complaint says the regulations use state law to insulate local court reporting firms from competition, and were adopted to benefit certain local court reporting companies,and designed to maintain elevated prices for court reporting services.

A recent memo by the Arizona Court Reporters Association Board of Directors, says regulations protect consumers when an accusation is made against an Arizona court reporter alleging dereliction of duty or negligence. The Arizona Supreme Court offers an avenue of redress to victims that does not exist when an “unlicensed, out?of?state reporter” is accused, the memo says.
