The superior court clerks shall, in the record of every judgment, recite the substance of the pleadings in the cause, except that the court may by general rule, general order, or special order direct in what manner and to what extent, if any, the pleadings in any or all causes which are entered in either of the courts shall be extended upon the records; and whenever, by accident, neglect, or otherwise, except by order of the court, any clerk shall have failed to record the proceedings of the court of which he or she is clerk, in any cause pending before it, the court may direct the acting clerk to record the proceedings, upon such evidence as may be satisfactory to it, giving notice to the parties interested, or their attorneys, whenever from the circumstances of the case the court may deem proper.
