Do not trust theis Court Reporter. Civil Case. Is that illegal to bring a recording device to the hearing, just to catch lying?

Palm Beach, FL |

Maybe never be admitted into Cout for an appeal or as evidence, but I will be able to confirm their scheme. Is that ok to record and post on a website when the transcripsts are clrearly doctored and by any means do not match hearing preceedings or what was said in the Court Room?

  1. This sounds like a trip through Wackeyville, but if you're that concerned that there is a recording conspiracy against you involving the court reporter, pay for and bring your own court reporter.

    If you think my response is the best response, it would help me if you would indicate that. Also, please note that my responses to question(s) are NOT legal advice from me to you because I am NOT your lawyer, you are NOT my client, and we do NOT currently have an attorney-client relationship. Thanks!


  2. As stated previously, you can bring in your own court reporter at your own expense. You might be able to record it on tape if you inform everyone that you are making a recording. It is not legal to record a person in Florida without their permission.

  3. As long as the recorder is visible to everyone, it is okay to record people talking. If it is not visible to everyone or agreed to, it is a felony.

    But, I have never, never, never heard of a court reporter altering a transcript. Sometimes they make phonetic mistakes, but these are obvious.

    This is a summary based on incomplete facts. You should not rely on it as legal advise. No attorney-client relationship is intended to be formed. You may call me 772-562-4570; email me vblawyer@bellsouth.net, or visit my website http://www.millerlawoffices.us
