In Cambria County Pennsylvania, President Judge Timothy Creany said the demand for court reporters is increasing, along with the number of cases the county handles. The county employs 10 full-time court reporters but currently has nine, he said, and, despite advertising in a variety of publications, is still looking for someone to fill the vacant spot.

“We have a real problem,” he said. “I don’t know how we’re going to be able to address it.”
