Litigation Support Tip of the Night

November 4, 2019

The word from court reporters is that these days they use CaseViewNet, more than LiveNote or any other program, to provide a real-time feed to attorneys at depositions.  The software can be downloaded for free here.  A version exists for both Windows and iPads.  With internet access a real-time feed can be received anywhere.  

The reporter's feed can be connected in one of three ways:

1. In the connection wizard, select 'Direct (Serial)' if you are using a serial cable.  You will be prompted to set a COM port and a baud rate.  The COM ports in use are listed in Windows device manager.  The most common baud rate is 2400.

2. An internet connection can be accessed with a six character session code.  The reporter will also need to provide you with a password so you can successfully log in. 

3. If you are on the same network as the court reporter, you can connect via the Network option.  A password will still be required.   

If you are using Lexis TextMap, CaseView should already be installed.
