Tenn. R. Crim. P. 12
Advisory Commission Comment.
This rule conforms to its federal counterpart and applies only in criminal courts of record.
The verbatim record referred to in section (g) means that the proceedings must be electronically (or in some other way) preserved, and does not necessarily mean that a written transcript must be prepared before it is needed for purposes of appeal or otherwise.
The state is also permitted to make appropriate pretrial motions under this rule.
