Louisville Court Reporting

Litigation is serious business, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun outside of the deposition suite and courtroom.

Attorneys, if you think you can run faster than a court reporter wielding a tripod in your direction, here’s a few pranks you can pull on your favorite reporter in honor of April Fools’ Day:

  • Superglue the zipper shut on their equipment bag before the deposition starts.
  • Hide their supply of exhibit stickers and replace with Smiley Face stickers.
  • Remove steno machine from equipment bag, insert toaster.

Can’t leave the reporters out of the fun:

  • When marking the first exhibit of the day, wear a giant foam finger while chanting “You’re number one! You’re number one!”
  • For realtime depositions, replace the word “objection” with “I’m telling. I’m telling. I’m telling, and the judge is gonna be MAD!”
  • Midway through the day of a fast-paced deposition, if asked to read back the last question respond with a straight face, “State your name for the record.”


Happy April Fools’ Day!
