I had the same reaction as you. What was described above Freidli isn't that much different from what I experience with court reporters now. I've witnessed the same things, in an updated fashion, in many depositions I've taken, to include having an exasperated court reporter throw up her hands and say "Stop!"

When she said that, we all stopped.


To add, I agree about getting to know your court reporters. Your court reporter can be your best friend in a lot of sistuations.

I hate to admit it, but I favor certain court reporters. I take a lot of depositions, but I try to use the same reporters as a rule. For out of town depositions, I'll pick them and up and have them ride along with me to make certain that they can do it. They're good, and a good court reporter can make or break your case.
