Surrogate's Court Procedure Act (SCP)

Court reporters

  1. Each surrogate may appoint and at pleasure remove one or more court reporters for the court, whose compensation shall be determined and paid in the same manner as salaries of clerks in the court.

  2. The court reporter appointed to serve in the surrogate's court may with approval of the surrogate be designated to perform duties in another court and the court reporter of another court with approval of the judge thereof may be designated to serve in the surrogate's court. The provisions of the judiciary law apply to court reporters in the court.

  3. Whenever the service of a court reporter is required and no regular court reporter is available, or he is sick, absent or unable to act, or whenever a trial or hearing requires additional reportorial services, a surrogate may appoint one or more temporary court reporters to serve in an action or proceeding to be paid a reasonable compensation certified by the surrogate which shall be a charge upon the city or county and paid as other expense of the court.
