Court Reporter: "Sorry, I'm outta here."

A decision of note today sets the stage like this:
The hearing was only reported in part, and the reporter’s transcript submitted on appeal indicated that the reporter left before the conclusion of the proceedings.
Quittin' time! I'm outta here!

Uh, ok, now what? Well, you've entered the Settled Statement Zone.
And once there, you better follow the rules, unlike the appellant in today's case.
