#16-27 Jameson v. Desta, S230899.  (D066793; 241 Cal.App.4th 491; San Diego County Superior Court; GIS9465.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal affirmed the judgment in a civil action. This case presents the following issue: In the case of a litigant who has been granted a fee waiver (Gov. Code, § 68631), can a county’s superior court employ a policy that has the practical effect of denying the services of an official court reporter to civil litigants who have been granted such a fee waiver, if the result is to preclude those litigants from procuring and providing a verbatim transcript for appellate review?

Review granted 01/27/2016 | Oral argument: 05/01/2018 | Decided: 07/05/2018
