Does poor court record with no reporter present deprive affected party of due process and meaningful access to court ?

Asked over 1 year ago - Twin Lake, MI

Regardless if defendant did or did not request reporter and no verbatim record of proceeding exists does this fact show deprivation of due process and meaningful access to courts ? No record exists for appeal or new trial because specific facts of defendants verbal motion citing fraud by plaintiff is available.

    Answered . You don't have to request a reporter. All proceedings in court are recorded. There is no "reporter" over in the corner typing anymore. The proceedings are audio recorded and then transcribed at a later date if ordered by one of the parties.
