Request a Transcript

Procedures for obtaining a transcript:

For 341 Meetings: Contact the Office of the U.S. Trustee (608) 264-5522

Transcript Requests:  To request a transcript of a court proceeding, parties must complete the Transcript and Audio Recording Request Form. Parties with an ECF account should file the request form through CM/ECF on the related case docket using the docket event “Request for Transcript.”  Parties without an ECF account can hand-deliver or mail the form to the Court.  The Court does not accept requests via fax, email, or telephone.

Transcript Processing:  The Court does not transcribe court proceedings. When a Transcript Order Form is received, the Court will forward the hearing information to the appropriate transcription service provider. The transcription service provider will contact you regarding receipt of the transcript request and payment arrangement. Thereafter, you will need to contact the transcription service provider directly if you have questions regarding your transcript order.

Transcript Cost:  The estimated cost of the transcript is based on the number of pages and how quickly you want the transcript.  One hour of audio equals approximately 50 typed pages.

Ordinary Up to 30 days $3.65 per page
14 Days Up to 14 days $4.25 per page
Expedited Up to 7 days $4.85 per page
Next Day Within 24 hours $6.05 per page
Hourly Within 2 hours $7.25 per page

 

Remember, this is only an estimate.  The actual cost will be determined by the transcription service provider.  The requestor will pay all fees directly to the transcription service provider before the transcript is released, unless other arrangements are made PRIOR to the production of the transcript.

When a transcript is filed, the attorneys and pro se parties who attended the hearing are solely responsible for redaction of the information described in FRBP 9037(a).  Redaction is accomplished only with input from the attorneys and pro se parties who attended the hearing.  Transcription service providers are not responsible for identifying a need for redaction or for redacting the transcripts absent a request by an attorney or pro se party.

For Appeal Purposes: Within the time period prescribed in FRBP 8009(a)(1), the appellant must submit a Transcript Order Form to the Bankruptcy Clerk or a certificate stating that the appellant is not ordering a transcript.
