Official Court Reporters
Local Rules of Court
10.00 through 10.00.05 sets out when court reporters are to be
provided and for what types of hearings in Nevada County.
Please refer to these rules if you have questions pertaining
to court reporters.
The Court provides Official Court Reporters for all felony,
misdemeanor and juvenile 602/300 proceedings, Probate Law & Motion
calendars and Family Law & Motion calendars, and any proceedings in
which the Court orders a reporter be present.
Court Reporters are NOT provided for civil court trials and jury
trials. In addition, court reporters are not automatically provided for family law court
trials, long cause hearings and exparte hearings. If a reporter is
requested and, per the Local Rules of Court, fees are paid, one may
be provided. To request that a court reporter be available for
a hearing in which one is not provided, please call (530)265-1324.
Your request must be made and fees posted no less than five (5)
court days prior to the hearing.
Availability and Alternatives to Official Court Reporters: For
matters in which tentative rulings are issued without the
prerequisite five (5) court days to request a reporter, a request
still may be made for a reporter to be present. The Courts can
not guarantee that an Official Court Reporter will be available,
therefore you may be instructed to procure your own.
