THE COURT REPORTER SCENE WENT AS FOLLOWS:
THE MAIN CHARACTER (TOMMY): Does she have to be in here? (Referring to court reporter.)
LAWYER: Yes, she does. She’s the recording secretary.
ME: RECORDING SECRETARY???? SMH!!!!
[SIDEBAR: Why do they always have the court reporter's machine so high?!]
A recent CNN article entitled, “A Federal Judge Toured A Troubled New York Jail. What She Found Disturbing,” mentions the presence of a court reporter when a judge toured a Brooklyn jail.
While a federal judge toured the Metropolitan Detention Center to assess the jail’s conditions, a stenographer accompanied her.
