In all cases in the jury-of-six sessions in which the defendant desires to have a stenographer, a written request for the same shall be made in writing and filed with the Court at least forty-eight hours prior to the hearing or trial at which the stenographer is required.
In the event that the hearing or trial is continued, it shall be the obligation of the defendant to renew the request for stenographer in the same manner prescribed in the foregoing paragraph. Failure to comply with this Order will be deemed to be a waiver of a defendant's right to request a stenographer. This Order is made in accordance with M.G.L. c. 218, s. 27A(h) .
