I have asked for a hearing to correct the record . The transcript has serios errors in it. Does the court make the changes?

Asked about 2 years ago - Santa Ana, CA

This is for an unlimited civil case. I understand I will get a court date for a hearing. Do the Defendants and myself discuss the errors at the hearing and the Judge rule what can be changed?

    Answered . Discussing your changes with opposing counsel before the hearing and reaching certain agreements about changes may well lead to those changes being made. However, the court must still approve those changes.

You are very likely spinning your wheels here.

    Everyone knows that transcripts aren't perfect. But they are what we have, and there is an implicit consensus that we will rely on them. The court system, like everything else in life, relies on the fact that "perfect is the enemy of good."
