Copy Request Form

Information on how to request files or copies from the Federal Records Center



Obtaining a Transcript


The form for requesting a transcript is the AO 435.


Orders for production of transcripts should be directed to the official court reporter assigned to the appropriate judge.  Orders for production of transcripts produced by electronic sound recording in either city should be directed to the Transcript Coordinator (mailed to 2 Niagara Square, Buffalo, NY 14202 or faxed to 716-551-1705).


Once a transcript has been produced, a certified copy is filed with the Clerk of Court as part of the case file.  There is a period of 90 days from the date of filing when requests for transcripts must be processed by a  court reporter.  Upon the expiration of the 90 days, the clerk's copy is thereafter available for  copying for a fee as noted in the Fee Schedule.


Obtaining Copies of Audio Recordings of Proceedings


Upon request, the court may reproduce tapes on its own duplicating equipment or on commercial equipment and may sell copies of electronic sound recording tapes made as the official record to the public at the prevailing rate prescribed by the miscellaneous fee schedule in effect.


The form for requesting a duplicate recording is the AO 436.
