Welcome to CSR Nation
I have a question about if it's the reporter's responsibility after a transcript is turned in, to go back and delete words that the attorney says are highly confidential and wants me to "redact" from the transcript.
I feel this is a Production issue and not my responsibility. This job is almost 300 pages and they want me to go through my transcript and delete words everywhere. I've been a reporter for 27 years and have never been asked to do this. Oh, of course, I have to take my own time for free to do it as well.
My only issue with what I did on this case is it was three hours of my own time after turning in the final product that I was not compensated for. Never once did anyone at this firm offer to pay me for this time. They did, however, admit this was a very unusual case with some extraordinary requests that they weren't used to either. I just said, "Never again." I did it once and that's enough.
Where else would you spend three hours of your time working for free? I'd say may be not too many places.
