Audio Transcript Requests

​Audio recordings (also referred to as FTR Recordings) are available electronically, on a CD, or in another format as arranged with the court.   

State law restricts who may receive audio copies of hearings and trials for some case types such as juvenile cases.  If you are requesting an audio recording of a juvenile court proceeding, please use the “Request for Copy of FTR Recording – Juvenile Court Proceeding” form. 

There is a cost for each of these options, as noted in the request forms below.  Please submit your request in writing either by letter or using the "Request for Copies of Court Proceedings" form or the "Request for a Copy of FTR Recording - Juvenile Court Proceedings" form, both of which are located below. 

Your request must contain the following information: 

  • ​Date of the proceeding you are requesting; 
  • Judge who heard the case; 
  • Courtroom number (if known); 
  • Case name; 
  • Case number; 
  • Name, address and phone number of person making the request;
  • E-mail address where electronic records can be sent to; and​

Indicate whether we should call you for pick up when ready, mail, or send electronically to you. 

​You may submit your request by:

  • Mail to the FTR Coordinator, 807 Main Street, Room 104, Oregon City, OR 97045 
  • Delivery in person to the Court Cashier window Room 104 (first floor) of the Clackamas County Courthouse.

  • CD Recording:  $10 per request / hearing / day (example:  4 day trial = $40) 
  • Other Media:  $9 plus the actual cost of the court-provided media per request / hearing day 

Please include applicable postage if you are requesting that the digital recording be returned to you in the mail.  Payment must be made in full prior to the Court processing your FTR request.  You may pay as follows: ​
