CCRA shows support for affiliate court reporting associations following open letter to NCRA leadership

This morning, July 27th, our colleagues at CalDRA, partnered with state associations of Arizona, Massachusetts, Ohio, Virginia, and Washington, issued an open letter to NCRA leadership regarding the new Corporate Partnerships announced by NCRA last month.  We at CCRA support CalDRA and all other state associations in their quest for answers to these very important questions about ethical standards and integrity in the industry.  Four of our CCRA board members will be meeting next week with other state leaders at the national convention in New Orleans to discuss these concerns.
Read the full letter here.

 President's Message

We did it! The Legislature has approved $10 million to fund family law court reporters in our state. We await the Governor’s signature.  During my first Presidency back in 2008, CCRA was fighting yet another ER bill that would have allowed electronic recording in family law courts.  It was at that time that CCRA first proposed bill language to the legislature that would require court reporters in family law proceedings.   Since then, essentially over the last ten years, our lobbyists have worked hard to educate the legislature, who now see the value in the “gold standard” of court reporting for the sensitive cases heard in our family law courts.  This is a big win for family law litigants who so desperately need a record, and CCRA is proud to be their champion!  Click here to continue reading.
