WVC 15 - 1 E- 54
§15-1E-54. Record of trial.
(a) Each general and special court-martial shall keep a
separate record of the proceedings in each case brought before it,
and the record shall be authenticated by the signature of the
military judge. If the record cannot be authenticated by the
military judge by reason of his or her death, disability, or
absence, it shall be authenticated by the signature of the trial
counsel or by that of a member, if the trial counsel is unable to
authenticate it by reason of his or her death, disability, or
absence. In a court-martial consisting of only a military judge,
the record shall be authenticated by the court reporter under the
same conditions which would impose such a duty on a member under
(b) (1) A complete verbatim record of the proceedings and
testimony shall be prepared in each general and special
court-martial case resulting in a conviction.
(2) In all other court-martial cases, the record shall contain
such matters as may be prescribed by regulations.
(c) Each summary court-martial shall keep a separate record of
the proceedings in each case, and the record shall be authenticated
in the manner as may be prescribed by regulations.
(d) A copy of the record of the proceedings of each general
and special court-martial shall be given to the accused as soon as
it is authenticated.
