The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) is a federal law that prohibits discrimination against any qualified individual with a disability. The Toledo Municipal Court does not discriminate on the basis of an individual’s disabilities. The Court provides equal access to the Court and to its programs. Toledo Municipal Court will make every reasonable effort to enable individuals with impairments or disabilities to participate in and benefit from the services, programs and activities of the Court.
Frequently Asked Questions
The ADAAA defines what it means to be a qualified individual with a disability (LINK TO THE ADA HERE) and includes individuals who have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, having a record of such impairment, or regarded as having such impairment
Any person with a disability who requires special accommodations in order to participate in court related events may notify Toledo Municipal Court in advance, so the requested accommodations may be met. Accommodations may include:
- Making reasonable modifications to polices, practices and procedures
- Relocation of a service or program to an accessible area
- Provide auxiliary aids and services such as assistance listening devices, qualified interpreters, and documents in large print or Braille.
The ADA does not require the court to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of the court’s system or its services or impose an undue financial or administrative burden on the court.
You may submit your request in writing, make a verbal request, or submit the Accommodation Request Form with as much advance notice as possible, but no later than two (2) business days before the scheduled event.
