These transcripts are from the very earliest days of the court’s existence.
Back then, Clera the court clerk — and, to a certain extent, Judge Haengemie himself — were still learning the finer points of their jobs.
Contemporary accounts also allude to a certain faint beery aroma that could sometimes be detected emanating from the back rooms of the Courthouse.
(No judicial malfeasance was ever proved; but, nevertheless, a blanket prohibition on all forms of alcohol usage by courtroom staff was enacted in Y561.)

Accordingly, when perusing the records, you should not be surprised to encounter the occasional lacunae, not to say outright errors, in courtroom procedure, spelling, formatting, etc.
