Commonwealth of Massachusetts Judiciary public notice non-discrimination based on disability

The Massachusetts Judiciary advises its employees and the public that it does not discriminate on the basis of a person's disability in employment or in access to its programs, services, and activities.

The Commonwealth's courts seek to provide appropriate aids and services to qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in the services, programs, or activities of the Judiciary. Requests should be made to the ADA Coordinator no later than 72 hours prior to the need for the accommodation.

The ADA does not require the Judiciary to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its services, programs, or activities, or result in an undue financial or administrative burden.

The Judiciary has designated ADA Coordinators to coordinate its efforts to comply with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and other federal and state laws protecting the rights of people with disabilities. Inquiries, requests, and complaints that a program, service, or activity of a particular court is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to one of the ADA Coordinators for that court.

For more information about ADA accessibility, please contact the Office of Court Management ADA coordinator:
