Audio Reproduction Request



A digital audio file is created when electronic sound recording is employed by a judge as the official method for making a record of hearings and trials.   A party may purchase a copy of an audio recording.


The fee for reproducing an audio recording of a court proceeding is established by the Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule.  Request filed electronically requires payment on-line by credit card at the time the request is filed.


All other request must be accompanied with the appropriate filing fee.  Checks and money orders must be made payable to "Clerk, United States Bankruptcy Court".   As with other fees, the bankruptcy  court cannot accept credit cards or personal checks from a debtor.   


Any party interested in purchasing an audio CD must complete a Request for Audio Recording of a Court Proceeding form (Local Form MSSB-436-1).  Local forms are available for download from the court’s web site  under the Bankruptcy Forms/Fees tab.
