Notice under the Americans with Disabilities Act

In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 ("ADA"), the Toledo Municipal Court will not discriminate against qualified individuals with either physical or mental disabilities in its services, programs, or activities.

Employment.  The Toledo Municipal Court does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices and complies with all regulations promulgated by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under Title I of the ADA. 

Effective Communication.  The Supreme Court of Ohio will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in the Court's services, programs, and activities, including qualified sign language interpreters, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision impairments.  Click here for more information on requesting interpreter services.

To Request Help or Modifications.  The Toledo Municipal Court will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all of its programs, services, and activities.  Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a service, program, or activity should contact the Court’s ADA Coordinator as soon as possible but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.  There is a form available here that may be used to make a request.  Please fill out the form and email it to courtadministrator@tmcourt.org or mail it to this address:
