ADA Accommodations

In support of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), it is the policy of this court to provide reasonable accommodations to participants in court proceedings who have communicative disabilities. Participants in court proceedings include parties in the case, attorneys, and witnesses who are deemed qualified to serve the court. Reasonable accommodations to participants in federal court proceedings include sign language interpreters and other appropriate auxiliary aids to all deaf, hearing impaired, or participants having other communications disabilities.

Coordinators responsible for arranging these services have been established at each court location. Individuals (litigants and witnesses) seeking assistance should contact the coordinator at least one week in advance of the scheduled court proceeding, or upon notification, so that appropriate accommodations can be arranged. Contact may be made by telephone, fax, in writing, or in person.
