Court transcripts are a written record of everything that is said during court proceedings, including the Judge’s rulings, attorneys’ arguments, witnesses’ testimony, and any other statements made in the courtroom. They are important for many reasons, such as to ensure an accurate account of what occurred during a trial or hearing, to facilitate appeals, and to provide a historical record of Court proceedings. If you need a copy of a Court transcript, you can request it from the Livingston County Circuit Court.
