Deaf or Hard of Hearing

The court provides reasonable accommodations to persons who are deaf or hard of hearing. Accommodations include sign language interpreters and auxiliary aids for participants in court proceedings (parties to the case, lawyers, witnesses, and jurors deemed qualified to serve by the court).

If you are a party to the case, a lawyer, a witness, a prospective juror, or a member of a jury and you believe you will require communication access real-time translation (CART) or a sign language interpreter in the courtroom, contact the access coordinator for the courthouse where the proceeding will be held. Each courtroom has an infrared (IR)/assisted-listening fixed system with eight headsets. Requests should be made at least seven days before a scheduled court proceeding.
