Why doesn't the Circuit Courts provide Minute Orders from each hearing?

Many Courts throughout the U.S. generate 'minute orders' after the hearing. Those minute orders are invaluable to all parties of the matter and leaves no question as to the rulings made during the court hearing. Since, the Kanawha County Circuit Court system is the busiest in the nation, wouldn't you think that the WV Supreme Court would want to do something to eliminate that situation? OR maybe that's 'why' the system is NOT in place.-- Just think --an introduction of a 'minute order' system would eliminate a lot of distortions, manipulation, game playing by the attorneys, judges, and reduce needless hearings of arguing between attorneys about 'what the court said' at the last hearing.

Because the clerks would have to pay attention and actually work.

There is no need to argue about what happened in each hearing. That is what the court reporter is for....... not the clerk.
