Everything in this book actually happened - in the courtrooms across the country and in the judge’s chambers associated with these courts. Whether or not the incidents described in each trial were true was up to a jury to decide. Even though the private discussions between judges and attorneys are kept from the juries, they aren't kept from the reader in this book. You will be joining them in the judges' chambers and eavesdropping on them in their asides during the trials to help you form what might possibly be a different reaction than the jury's.

Fannie Smith began her court reporting career in Chicago. Soon she moved back to Minneapolis, near family. There she freelanced, working in the court system as a substitute and covering most of the conventions and business meetings in the area. The last 18 years, she was an official for the first judicial district working for Judge Robert J. Breunig. The area was rural, and became urban, bordering the south and west Twin Cities. In 1967, we were four judges and 4 court reporters. When I retired in 1985, there were near 30. Today the number has more than doubled. District, county and city judges became the same and rotated throughout the courts of the district. In the 1970's court reporters became a "pool" answering to a court administrator at the convenience of the court system. Fannie Smith was an early machine writer - never saw one in Chicago - second in Minnesota - in a world of pen writing court reporters who tolerated, or "feared" the female machine writer. In 1985, Fannie retired with her husband, Maynard, of 50 years. Together they spend about half of their time either in Milaca, Minnesota and in Sun City, Arizona. She's been writing family histories, and has published on the Internet The Record Never Forgets 2nd Edition, History of Court Reporting and Shorthand; and a book of historical fiction; Opportunity 1850 about the emigration of four farm brothers from Europe who realized their American dream.

Court Reporting in Australia

Author: Peter Gregory

Publisher: Cambridge University Press


Category: Social Science

Court Reporting in Australia, first published in 2005, uses the experience of reporters and subeditors to present a practical view of reporting on the legal system. Peter Gregory avoids the rigid fashion in which media law matters are usually described and, while he covers such vital areas as defamation and contempt, he focuses on the experiences and lessons to be learned from court reporters on the job. He highlights the problems and common mistakes likely to land journalists and media organisations in trouble. It features information and realistic advice from court reporters working for metropolitan media outlets as well as revealing how they perform their daily tasks; for example, preparing television news reports when no pictures and no story are available. Practical and useful as well as theoretical: no one who reports on legal matters can afford to be without this book.
