RULE 4011 - Deadline for Delivery of Transcript

RULE 4011. Deadline for Delivery of Transcript

(A) Unless otherwise ordered by the court, the court reporter or transcriptionist shall deliver the transcript for those cases under appeal within 14 days of receiving notice from the district court administrator or the court's designee, as required by Pa.R.A.P. 1922(a).

(B)The court reporter or transcriptionist shall deliver transcripts for all other requests within 30 calendar days of receiving notice from the district court administrator or the court's designee, as provided by Rule 4007, unless an accelerated time frame is mandated by court order, law or local rule.

(C)For requests made by a party required to post a deposit under Rule 4007, the 30-day period for delivery of the transcript shall not commence until the Rule 4007 deposit is received by the court. In those cases involving economic hardship under Rule 4008, the 30-day period for delivery of the transcript shall not commence until disposition of the application for waiver or reduction of costs. In cases where a reduction of costs is granted, the time frame commences once the reduced deposit is received by the court.

(D)The court reporter or transcriptionist, upon a showing of good cause to the president judge, may request an extension of the deadline for a period of time not to exceed an additional 30 days. In no case shall more than one extension be granted.

(E) Transcripts prepared pursuant to the Children's Fast Track Appeal program shall be given priority.

(F) Requests for transcripts unrelated to cases under appeal or in cases where no court order has been entered directing transcription shall not be given priority. However, in any event such transcripts shall be filed and delivered within 45 days, absent an extension for good cause approved by the President Judge.
