The Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County digitally records all courtroom proceedings. The Court Reporting staff monitors all courtrooms to ensure that a quality transmission is received and enters data tags such as case name, case number, attorney names, etc. This "tagging" of information assists in searching the digital record when a transcript is ordered.
Our Court Reporting staff can produce a CD for listening purposes. CDs are available for $25 per CD and are only available for hearings held after July 1, 1999. Each CD can hold approximately 6 hours of digital audio - If a CD is requested for a multiple day trial, more than one CD may need to be purchased at $25 per CD.
Please note - CDs can only be played on a computer - software needed to listen to the digital recording is included on the CD.
