Maine Revised Statutes

§1-605. Compensation of reporters

Reporters appointed under Title 4, sections 751 to 756, shall, if a transcript is requested by the court or a party, file the original transcript with the court and receive the same compensation as provided by law for temporary court reporters, and travel at the rate of 10¢ a mile. [1979, c. 540, §1 (NEW).]

Transcript rates shall be in accordance with Title 4, section 651, for transcript furnished for the files of the court and shall be paid by the county in which the court or examination is held, after the reporter's bill has been allowed by the judge of the court in which the services were rendered. In probate matters, the personal representative, conservator or guardian shall, in each case out of the estate in his hands, pay to the register for the county the amount of the reporter's fees, giving such fees the same priority as provided in section 3-815 for other costs and expenses of administration, or as otherwise provided for in the case of insolvent estates, provided that the court can order payment by the county in case the estate assets are not sufficient. [1979, c. 540, §1 (NEW).]
