Proposed Rules ArchivesRAP 9.2 - Verbatim Report of Proceedings
GR 9 COVER SHEET
Suggested Rule Changes
PURPOSE: The Office of Public Defense (OPD) proposes to change RAP 9.2 to clarify that closing argument may be transcribed at public expense without specific authorization by the trial court as with voir dire and opening statements. Current RAP 9.2(e)(2)(D) instructs court reporters to include opening statements and closing argument in the table of contents of the verbatim transcript of proceedings, subject to RAP 9.2(b). However, RAP 9.2(b) only applies to voir dire and opening statements. The proposed change would simply clarify that the inclusion of closing argument in the VRP is not subject to the special requirements of RAP 9.2(b).
