Welcome to CSR Nation
Does anyone know when a small claims case would be due? I took an awful one the other day, and I do not know when it would be due. Are small claims considered to be like a civil case? Like would I have maybe six months to do it. I live in Oklahoma. If you can help, I sure would appreciate it.
If you don't have a deadline to work from, you should assume the transcript is due no later than eight working days after the proceeding.
Thanks, I will. Judge taking under advisement, so I have a little breathing room.
I think the longest you could take is two weeks. Six months is out of the question. But first of all, was the transcript ordered? When I worked in court, I didn't prepare the transcript at all unless it was ordered.
I would also assume if you were there, that someone must have ordered a reporter ahead of time because Small Claims actions are not reported on a regular basis. You may want to get confirmation it is, in fact, ordered and they want the transcript. I used to report Small Claims actions 20 years ago and I didn't prepare a transcript unless requested.
Judge still has to make his decision, so I have a little time. Other reporter took this case, and they appealed hers, that's why I think it will be appealed. So you think I have maybe two weeks. Very legal stuff that I have to look up, not a long hearing though. Thank God. Thanks for your help. I appreciate it.
