“In Stereo, Where Available: the challenges of including audio and video in your appellate record.”


Derek D. Bauman, City of Houston Appellate Lawyer

Derek Bauman explores the difficulties of attaching audio and video to motions, filing them with the district clerk, and ultimately getting them to the court of appeals. The CLE discusses the pragmatic difficulties district and appellate clerks have in handling the files as well as what some of the least worst options for handling them may be.
