This month the Indiana Supreme Court’s Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure introduced a proposed amendment to the state’s Rules of Trial Procedure. Specifically, Rule 74(B) states that “Recording through shorthand or stenography is prohibited.” Furthermore, the Indiana Supreme Court indicated that: “The proposed amendment to Trial Rule 74 would require all courts (including city and town courts) to record hearings in all case types, prohibit recording through shorthand or stenography, and delete provisions covered in other Rules or statutes.” The Indiana Supreme Court’s attempt to prohibit stenography must be stopped! We must take this threat to stenography seriously!
