Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a wide-ranging civil rights law that prohibits, under certain circumstances, discrimination based on disability. The ADA does not apply to the federal judiciary. However, pursuant to Judicial Conference policy, federal courts provide reasonable accommodations to persons with communications disabilities.

The District of Montana has approved guidelines for providing accommodations for trial participants with communications disabilities in compliance with Judicial Conference policy.
