Request for Special Accommodation

The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), a federal civil rights statute, requires all state and local governmental entities, including the courts, to accommodate the needs of persons with disabilities who have an interest in court activities, programs, and services. The Superior Court does not discriminate on the basis of disability in employment or in the admission and access to its services, programs or activities. The Court has designated an ADA Coordinator at each Court facility to carry out each facility’s compliance with the nondiscrimination requirements of the ADA.

Persons with disabilities who require a special accommodation to access Court programs, services or activities may request the needed accommodation by filling out the Request for Accommodations by Persons with Disabilities and Order form, Judicial Council Form MC-410. Forms are available by clicking on the form name below, at the Clerk’s office and the ADA Coordinator’s office of each Courthouse, and by mail upon request to the ADA Coordinator’s office. Submit the completed form to the Clerk’s office or ADA Coordinator’s office of the Courthouse at issue. Jurors requesting a special accommodations should submit the completed form to the Juror Services Department.

National Council on Disability Explores Scope of and Solutions to Veterans Backlog

In partnership with current and former service members, the National Council on Disability (NCD) – an independent federal agency that advises the President, Congress and other federal agencies on disability policy – has released a report titled,  “Clearing the Backlog and Facilitating Benefits for America’s Veterans.” The 80-page report includes opinions and evaluations by key stakeholders, buoyed by the insights of experts, in addressing the current state of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability claims backlog.

NCD thanks Paralyzed Veterans of America for numerous, invaluable contributions in preparing this report.

“In the same spirit with which Americans honor all Veterans for their service to our country, the National Council on Disability has chosen National Military Families month and the day after Veterans Day to offer these recommendations to help clear the backlog in getting necessary supports to U.S. Veterans,” said NCD member Captain Jonathan Kuniholm, USMC (Retired). “Making good on the promises made to Veterans with service-connected disabilities and health issues, financial uncertainty, and other hardships when adjusting to civilian life in a timely manner is the least that we can do for those ‘who shall have borne the battle.’ NCD hopes this report can facilitate meaningful improvements across numerous areas of concern.”

“NCD’s findings and recommendations focus on necessary actions that need to be taken to reduce the VA claims backlog,” said NCD member Janice Lehrer-Stein. “Improvements have been made, but more needs to be done. NCD recognizes the important and ongoing progress that has been made to date and remains available to assist in the collaboration of all federal agencies to find the best and most coordinated way forward.”

Wheelchairs on buses not always secured

Screen Shot 2013-03-04 at 5.07.24 PMLOS ANGELES (KABC) — It’s tough enough for most of us to get around L.A., but imagine if you were confined to a wheelchair and forced to rely on public transportation. The L.A. County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) says safety is its first priority for the millions of bus and rail-car riders it serves every year. But disabled riders who spoke to ABC7 Eyewitness News tell a much different story. In a two-month undercover investigation, we attached hidden cameras to the wheelchairs of some of those riders. We found violations of federal civil rights law, and some drivers putting the lives of their passengers at risk.
