Welcome to CSR Nation
Our client was in LA today taking a depo and we told her not to stipulate away the Original. Well she refused to do the Stip and just called saying the other side is absolutely furious with her, demanding that she do so and also asking for the codes regarding this. I explained to her that you cannot relieve the Court Reporter of her duties. I actually feel sorry for putting her in this position.
We've had a little push back before from LA attorneys but nothing like this. Has anyone else?
Tell her to tell them that she paid for her O&1, and if they want a copy, they are more than welcome to purchase their own. There is nothing in the code that says she must agree to their stip. She should ask them to show her the code that requires her to acquiesce to their demand. She can tell them that she is actually FOLLOWING THE CODE, and they are going around it.
