PCRA: Working for You in Uncertain Times

In-Person Requirement Suspended for Court Reporters

Concerned for their colleagues impacted by COVID-19 closures and travel bans, PCRA leadership contacted Pennsylvania legislators last week, urging them to suspend the requirement for physical presence of notaries who are court reporters/stenographers participating in criminal, civil and administrative proceedings of record in this Commonwealth.

PCRA’s efforts were successful.  On March 21, Governor Wolf granted the Department of State’s request, temporarily suspending the physical presence of notaries who are court reporters or stenographers participating in criminal, civil, and administrative hearings.

This suspension will only last for the duration of the declared disaster emergency.

Sign PCRA's Petition to Extend the In-Person Suspension!

PCRA believes that the in-person requirement should be permanently eliminated, as has already been done in several other states.  Show your support for our position that legal proceedings should be able to be held with the use of available technology!
