Court Trial Transcripts

Are members of the public entitled to a copy of a trial court transcript upon request? Who decides on the price? Is it paid to the Court or to the stenographer personally?

In the US? I believe that lawyers can request transcripts. Yes, there is a cost.

File a FOIA to get it free, maybe?

Thank you.

Yes, the U.S. I live in New York City.

It is my uncertain understanding that a stenotype court reporter inputs the words that are said during the trial. He/she is paid a salary & benefits by the court for that work.

Then, if and only if one or more parties requests a copy of the trial transcript, the stenographer converts her inputted record into a court transcript, which he/she then sells to the requesting party. I believe that the money paid is hers/his to keep not the property of the court.
