Home Difference between Court Minutes &  Court Transcripts

Court minutes are entered into the case by the courtroom clerk. This is not a complete record when compared to a case utilizing an electronic recording device or a Court Reporter transcription. A minute order is a typewritten order of the court regarding the transaction that happened at a particular hearing or proceeding. It can be rather brief. A transcript is a word for word transcription of the proceeding recorded in writing by a certified shorthand court reporter. A transcript will be more detailed since the court reporter will have transcribed every word that was said by the court, witnesses and the attorneys. You can usually obtain a copy of the minute order without cost, but you will need to pay the court reporter's fee for a certified copy of the transcript.
