We raised enough money to pay for the appearance fee of the court reporter last night but came nowhere near enough to purchase a copy of the transcript therefore, at this time we will not be doing so. It is my understanding that NJ Mentor discused purchasing a copy of the transcript directly from the reporter. Perhaps one of you could approach them to ask about making their copy of the transcript available to others. I don't think that is likely.
We collected $357 last night, which leaves $82 after the appearance fee of $275. We would need to collect an additional $493 to cover the cost of our own copy of the transcript.
