Court Reporters in Tennessee get a Board finally
I'm a big fan of court reporter boards. My home state of California has a great one as do many other states. Tennessee just got theirs (finally) as well as a prestigious attorney on their seven-member board. The Memphis Daily News recently wrote an interesting article/interview with Earl W. Houston II, an attorney appointed by Governor Phil Bredesen.
Here is a snippet of the article:
Q: Many people think that with today’s technology, court reporters are a thing of the past. Are court reporters used with as much frequency today as in prior years?
A: Yes. According to most publications, jobs in the court reporting sector are steadily increasing. Court reporters perform many functions, such as recording official proceedings in courtrooms, taking statements for lawyers during depositions and hearings and recording meetings, conventions and other events outside of the courtroom. Job opportunities for court reporters should increase in the future.
