Rule 18. Preserving a Recording of a Court Proceeding
(a) Transcripts and Other Recordings. The official verbatim recording of any court proceeding is an official record of the court. The original recording must be kept by the person who recorded it, a court-designated custodian, or the clerk, in a place designated by the court. The recording must be retained according to the records retention and disposition schedules adopted by the Supreme Court, unless the court specifies a different retention period.
(b) Transcription. If a certified reporter's verbatim recording will be transcribed, the certified reporter who made the recording must be given the first opportunity to make the transcription, unless that certified reporter no longer serves in that position or is unavailable for any other reason.
