The Oregon state court system is dedicated to providing equal access to court programs and services for people with disabilities. The following information is also available in Spanish.
The Oregon Judicial Department (OJD) does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission to, access to, or operations of its programs or services. Under Title II of the ADA, each OJD program or service will be accessible to and usable by qualified persons with disabilities. The OJD will make reasonable changes to its policies and procedures for qualified persons with disabilities unless doing so would cause a change in basic OJD programs or services or would result in unreasonable financial or administrative burdens. Each court will provide ADA accommodations, including sign language interpreters and assistive devices, to participants in court proceedings with speech and hearing disabilities at state expense.
Persons needing ADA accommodations or services for a state court or other Judicial Department program, activity, or event should make their request locally to the ADA coordinator for the court or other office. Requests for accommodations for court proceedings must be received as soon as possible, but not less than four business days before an activity or event. (UTCR 7.060.) Please provide as much advance notice as possible to assist us with providing you with reasonable accommodations. The Oregon Relay Service (711) is available to assist persons with speech or hearing disabilities. In addition, the Speech to Speech Relay Service supplies Oregon with a toll-free number (1-877-735-7525) to assist persons whose speech may be difficult to understand.
The OJD has an internal grievance procedure providing for quick and fair resolutions of complaints claiming Judicial Department discrimination on the basis of disability in violation of the U.S. Department of Justice regulations implementing Title II of the ADA. This procedure complies with 28 CFR 35.107(b). Filing of Complaint
Request of Reconsideration
Use of the Judicial Department grievance procedure in no way impairs persons claiming discrimination to search for other remedies under the ADA such as filing an ADA complaint with the responsible federal department, agency, or court. Copies of this posting or alternative formats are available on request.
