Agencies' Unidentifiable Emails
6 Replies

This must be a pet peeve for any reporter who freelances for a lot of different agencies.  Even though their email address is something like "calendar@XYZ agency," when I look at the email in my…Continue

Realtime plus Rough Drafts
15 Replies

So I'm interested in other rptrs' experience with this.  Historically, first we had the ability to produce rough drafts before there was realtime.  Let's say it was at $X/page.  Then when realtime…Continue

Lindsay Pinkham replied to Abda Laurent's discussion Why do attorneys give reporters a hard time?
"One reason is because we are women (most of us).  It's even harder when you're a very young woman.  I find now that I have gray hair, and looking around the table I see that most of the time the attorneys are young enough to be…"

Lindsay Pinkham replied to Professional Reporting Services,'s discussion Stipulating away the Original
"Much as I'd like every job to be at least an 0&2, I still think this argument is one best made by the agency to their client outside of the depo setting.  If I've been reporting all day and they whip through the stipulation at the…"

Previously Marked Exhibits

It used to be that when attys would bring out a previously marked exh. (with the photocopied sticker or stamp bearing the previous witness's name and exh. number) and discuss it with the witness, at the end of the depo I would ask counsel if he wanted it attached for reference, along with the exhs marked in the current depo.  And if he said yes, I would send it in to the agency requesting that they attach it, and in my index above the exh. descriptions I would just have a parenthetical, (The…See More
