Transcript Policy

This page provides resources for the transcript policy of the Federal Court system and the Northern District of New York. Information on the policy can be found in General Order 3 and the Transcript Request Procedure. For questions or concerns regarding the transcript policy of the Court please contact one of our office locations, the Court Helpdesk (1-833-771-4945), or a Court Reporter within the District.

Electronic transcripts, once ordered by a party or attorney and filed by the Court Reporter, will be electronically filed and only available for viewing at the Clerk’s Office public terminal. The transcript may NOT be copied, reproduced or attached as exhibits on the public docket for a period of 90 days. After the expiration of the 90-day deadline, and all redaction requests have been ruled on, the restrictions on the transcript will be removed. The transcript will be made available remotely to view, download or print a copy from PACER or from the Clerk’s Office at a rate of $.10 per page. During the initial 90-day period, individuals wishing to purchase a copy of the transcript must do so through the Court Reporter. Once an attorney in the case has purchased a transcript, the attorney will be given access to the transcript through the court’s CM/ECF system. See the Electronic Availability of Civil and Criminal Transcripts for a complete description.
