RULE 80

RULE 80
STENOGRAPHIC REPORT OF TRANSCRIPT AS EVIDENCE

Whenever the testimony of a witness at a trial or hearing which was stenographically reported is admissible in evidence at a later trial, it may be offered in evidence by a copy of the transcript thereof duly certified by the person who reported the testimony or the clerk of court having custody of the original transcript.

Note:

This Rule 80 is substantially the same as the Federal Rule. It avoids the need to produce the original notes, or the stenographer, to prove the transcript of a trial or hearing.
