According to Florio link there are no transcripts made in a bench trial in NC. Apparently Hardy's lawyers paid for one but have yet to produce or share it.
So what did Pete King examine other than a mirror shot of his fat ass?
This is 100% correct. There is no transcripts for a District Court case. The state does not pay for a person to do this. Now, Hardy's lawyer might have hired their own to gather statements to use against the complainant in Superior Court, but they are under no obligation to give those to anyone.
