Is a settled statement that bears the signature of a trial judge valid?

California, United States of America

The following excerpt is from Quail v. Municipal Court, 171 Cal.App.3d 572, 217 Cal.Rptr. 361 (Cal. App. 1985):

[171 Cal.App.3d 576] "(3) Although bearing the signature of the trial judge, the engrossed settled statement does not contain the trial judge's certification that the statement accurately and truly reflects the oral proceedings of February 16, 1984. Nor have the parties stipulated that the statement does so reflect said proceedings. (See Potter v. Solk (1958) 161 Cal.App.2d Supp. 870, 871-872 [327 P.2d 990].)
