In Common’s song, “Testify,” he mentions a court reporter, stating: “Court Reporter making her words shorter.”
The video to the song also shows a court reporter writing on her machine in the court scenes. The video stars legendary actors: Taraji Henson, Bill Duke, Wood Harris, and Steve Harris.
SIDEBAR: Her paper flow is all kinds of wrong! Smh!
In his recent Netflix special, Chris Rock mentioned a stenographer. While he was talking about his divorce proceedings, he mentioned the legal workers and court employees who were in the courtroom. He didn’t leave out the stenographer.
Within the first fifteen minutes of The Defenders, I spotted a court reporter. It’s great to see court reporters being featured amongst the superheroes.
Milton Berle played Fran Drescher’s lawyer in this episode.
