The Office of Court Management, Transcription Services provides official transcripts of electronically recorded proceedings from the Superior, Suffolk Juvenile, and Boston Housing courts. All proceedings from these courts are recorded either by a monitor or court personnel utilizing an electronic recorder.

If you are seeking a transcript from a Superior court proceeding recorded by an official court reporter, that reporter can assist you. If you know the name of the Superior court reporter, find their contact information here pdf format of Official Court Reporters List
. If you need further assistance, call the Superior court at 617-788-8130.

If you are seeking a transcript from other courts, the clerk magistrate or register where your proceeding was held can assist you.

Duplicate Recordings

Requestors seeking a duplicate audio recording of a Superior Court proceeding must file a motion with the court for the duplicate audio recording. If the court allows the motion, the clerk who has the care, custody, and control of original recordings will provide the duplicate audio recording to the requestor (see Massachusetts Superior Court Standing Order 2-87: Electronic Recordation of Proceedings pdf format of standing-order2-87-e-recordation.pdf
). 

The cost of the duplicate audio recording is $50.50 (see Uniform Schedule of Fees pdf format of uniform-schedule-of-fees.pdf
). The Office of Transcription Services does not provide duplicate audio recordings nor collects fees for duplicate audio recordings; that is the duty of the respective clerk.
