Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), individuals with disabilities (as defined by the ADA) may be entitled to accommodations to participate in Court hearings or other business with the court. The 42nd District Court has enacted a Local Administrative Order (LAO 2015-06J) setting forth the Court's policies and procedures with respect to ADA accommodations.
To request an accommodation, we ask that you complete a Request for Accommodations form (SCAO form MC 70). Once completed, please return this form to 42nd District Court, 35071 - 23 Mile Rd, New Baltimore - MI 48047.
If your request is denied for any reason, you may fill out Review of Request for Reasonable Accommodations and Response and file this form with Case Management. Your request for review will be considered in accordance with the Court's Local Administrative Order 2015-06J, and a decision will be communicated to you in writing or some other accessible format.
If you have additional questions regarding an accommodation under the ADA, please contact the court's ADA Coordinator at (586) 725-9500.
Interpreter Communication with Retained or Court Appointed Counsel
Court-appointed and retained counsel must keep in contact with the foreign language and/or ASL interpreter, including the agency that has been assigned to the case, for future dates and case status. Their court time must be scheduled accordingly. Interpreters are to be notified as soon as possible of any scheduling or location changes.
