Steven Groce, Attorney Advertisement

1.Whenever the supreme court makes an order temporarily transferring a circuit judge to a circuit court other than the court to which he was appointed or elected, or whenever any such judge is temporarily transferred or assigned in a manner other than by order of the supreme court, the supreme court, upon written notice from such transferred judge, shall, if the regular reporter is for any reason unavailable and the transfer is deemed necessary, order the temporary transfer of the official court reporter of the court of such transferred judge to accompany the judge and perform all the duties of the official court reporter of the court to which the judge is transferred in the matters heard or considered by the transferred judge while so transferred, and the official court reporter shall perform the same duties, make the same charges for his services, and be subject to the same laws and rules while acting as such transferred reporter as though he were the* regularly appointed official reporter of the court to which he was temporarily appointed.

2.Upon the request made to the supreme court by a circuit judge whose official reporter is absent by reason of illness or physical incapacity, for the transfer of a reporter, the supreme court may, with the consent of the judge appointing him, or without such consent if said judge is absent or incapacitated, order the temporary transfer of another official reporter to said circuit court, and the official reporter shall perform the same duties, make the same charges for his services, and be subject to the same laws and rules while acting as such transferred reporter as though he were the regularly appointed official reporter of the court to which he was temporarily appointed.

3.In all judicial circuits having more than one circuit judge, in the absence or incapacity of one of the judges, the presiding judge may order the court reporter of said absent or incapacitated judge to act as court reporter of another division of said court when he shall deem such action necessary.
