Americans with Disabilities Act

Request for Reasonable Accommodation for Persons with Disabilities

If you have a physical or mental impairment and believe you may need an accommodation to fully and equally participate in a particular court proceeding or activity, you may request a reasonable accommodation.

To request a reasonable accommodation, complete the Request for Reasonable Accommodation Form and return to Ms. Lori Edelkind.

Accommodation requests are granted to any qualified person with a disability for whom such an accommodation is reasonable and necessary under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. These requests ensure full and equal access to the courts proceeding or activity in which the person is participating, so long as the accommodation does not pose an undue administrative or financial burden to the court or fundamentally alter the nature of the proceeding or activity for which the accommodation is being requested.

You may be required to provide additional information for (the Court) to properly evaluate your reasonable accommodation request(s). This information, if required, will be confidentially maintained and will only be used to evaluate your accommodation request(s) unless you request otherwise.

Generally, (10) days advance notice is required to review reasonable accommodation requests. However, a response to an immediate need for accommodation will be considered to the fullest extent possible.
