If the transcript of the trial minutes or other proceedings, or a portion thereof, is necessary for the appeal, it must be ordered at the earliest possible moment. The transcript can be ordered as early as during the trial court proceedings but not later than 14 days after the filing of the Notice of Appeal. To order a transcript, the appellant should complete Transcript Information Form B, which may be obtained from either the Courtroom Deputy, the district court's appeals clerk, or this Court's website. The appellant should then forward a copy to the court reporter. See FRAP 10(b); LR 12.2(a)(1). If the appellant does not intend to order a transcript, the appellant must check the appropriate box on Form B and file Form B with the Court no later than 14 days after the filing of the Notice of Appeal.
