Rules & Forms
In the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, the official record of the proceeding may be taken by electronic sound (digital audio) recording. To minimize the cost of litigation when proceedings are recorded as the official record by electronic sound recording equipment, you may purchase a copy of the digital audio recording for your own use from the clerk, at the prevailing rate prescribed by the miscellaneous fee schedule in effect, in lieu of a transcript by filing a completed CD request form (AO 436).
Written citations to the record must reference a filed transcript (docket entry and page number) and shall not reference an audio record. A transcript of a proceeding may be obtained, at the transcript rates established by the Judicial Conference, by filing a completed transcript request form (AO 435).
