Official off work due to injury

    I'm off work due to an injury and as of now I'm not collecting short term disability, it's time off without pay until a certain amount of days.  The question that I have is can I still produce previously ordered transcripts?  The court administrator told me that she doesn't think so and that she's going to find out if she can have them sent out.  Now, if I can't do them myself, why can't I send them to a scopist of my choosing?  Does anyone know anything about this?  Thanks for any advice.

    Of course you should be continuing to do your transcripts!  I am an official and my salary pays me to be in court.  I am a private contractor when it comes to transcript, not to mention there are time deadlines!  When I retire, I will STILL be doing transcripts for the court hearings I reported!  I hope your court administrator sees the light and lets you get on with your job duties!

    Good luck!

    Jessica,

    I am also an official.  I agree with Candy.  The transcript is your work product and you should be the one who decides who will transcribe it.  If you are unable, then it is your job to find appropriate means to have the transcripts prepared.  There is a reporter in my circuit that has been retired for 10 years and he still will get a periodic order.  Hope that helps.

    Jessica,

    As Paul said, long after you retire, you are required to produce transcripts, disability or no disability.


    As you may know, MAPCR's past president, Tom Klink, recently passed away from cancer.  He was an official.  He was on short-term and long-term disability during that time and produced and was paid for his transcripts by the county.  Perhaps you want to ask your court administrator to talk to Saginaw's court administrator.  If you email me, mpuchel@charter.net, I can give you the contact information.
