In this age of computers and digital recording devices, it is a public rip-off and massive inefficiency that transcripts of state court proceedings can only be obtained by paying outrageous prices to court reporters to transcript into pages of type courtroom events which could easily be recorded and made available to the public by other means. Considering how much is being litigated and how many more people are being charged, this pilot program is long overdue and should just be implemented across the board in Illinois state courts, not just in it’s federal district courts. It cannot be that difficult for judges to determine what testimony and evidence should be accessible in each case!
