In the NCRA (National Court Reporter Association) Court Reporter Code of Ethics, #4 states, “Preserve the confidentiality and ensure the security of information, oral or written, entrusted to the Member by any of the parties in a proceeding.”
An important thing for court reporters to keep in mind is that a transcript is so much more than words on a page. Those black and white letters, when taken off the page, are statements that impact someone’s life, their livelihood, or their family. A court reporter can never know everyone that is or can be connected to the case at hand. If information were passed on, it could mean the ruination of a reputation or even a life.
Cady Reporting court reporters are held to the highest ethical standards. We understand that everything we do effects everything you do. Choose a court reporting firm that takes ethics very seriously. If you read over the NCRA Code of Ethics and you don’t recognize your court reporting firm reflected, it may be time to consider a switch.
