51-2-4. Distribution of transcripts of hearing or deposition. (a) Each shorthand reporter who takes and transcribes the proceedings at a hearing or testimony at a deposition, either of which is to be used as evidence in a claim before the division of workers compensation, shall furnish the original transcript of that hearing or deposition to the administrative law judge, one copy to the employer, insurance carrier or its attorney, and one copy to the claimant or the claimant's attorney.
(b) In cases involving the workers compensation fund, the reporter shall also furnish one copy of the transcript of hearing or deposition to the attorney representing that fund.
(c) In settlement cases, the reporter shall furnish the original transcript to the director within two weeks. The transcript of the settlement hearing shall constitute a written final award. Copies of the settlement transcript shall be furnished to other parties only on request. Settlement transcripts shall be bound only by stapling without front or back covers. Reporters' fees in settlement cases shall be paid by the respondent unless otherwise indicated in the settlement.
(d) The fees of the reporter for hearings and depositions, including all copies furnished as provided above, shall be paid by the respondent upon completion of the transcript by the reporter. The fees shall be assessed by the administrative law judge in the final award. If the fees are assessed against a party other than the respondent and if the respondent has paid the fees, the party against whom they are assessed shall make the necessary reimbursement.
(e) A determination of the reasonableness of a reporter fee shall be made by the administrative law judge if this fee is challenged.
