The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in state and local government services. This includes participation in court proceedings. Pursuant to Title II of the ADA the Florida State Courts System will make reasonable modifications in policies, practices and procedures; furnish auxiliary aids and services; and afford program accessibility.

Parties, witnesses, lawyers, jurors and other court participants can request assistance with things such as large print documents, American Sign Language interpreters, assistive listening devices, assignment to wheelchair accessible court rooms, and the like.

If you are a person with a disability who needs any accommodation in order to participate in this proceeding, you are entitled, at no cost to you, to the provision of certain assistance.

For all other ADA accommodation requests please contact:
