Attend a trial in any Idaho district court, and you’ll see a person seated below the judge, smoothly taking down the proceedings with keystrokes that seem too few to encompass the rapid-fire stream of testimony.
The proceedings also are being recorded digitally, but that’s a backup.
“The official record is not the digital recording. It’s the court reporter,” Idaho Senior Judge Michael McLaughlin says. “It’s critical.”
It’s also uncannily accurate and more reliable than a machine recording, says McLaughlin, who retired from the 4th District bench last year. He now serves as education director for the Idaho Supreme Court and an appellate judge for Boise-area magistrate courts.
“The reason for our job is so that someone else can review what happened, whether it’s a deposition or a trial or whatever … and so a high court some day can review it and know exactly what was said,” says Lori Pulsifer of Boise, a court reporter for the past 26 years.
“That’s pretty cool, that something I wrote down is someone’s [key to the future], whether it’s custody of their child or whether they get the death penalty or if they win a property line dispute,” she says. “Every case is important to the parties involved.”
