Request Copies of Audio Recordings and Transcripts

All requests for audio copies of hearings are processed by the Information Technology Department.

A written request is required to obtain a copy of the hearing CDs and transcripts. Requests should include your name, address, and daytime telephone number.

Your request must also include the following information:
