AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (TITLE II) POLICY
The Court of Common Pleas of Delaware County (Court) complies with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which provides that "no qualified individual with a disability shall, by reason of such disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of a public entity, or be subjected discrimination by any such entity". 42 U.S.C.A. §12132. Pursuant to that requirement, if you are an individual with a disability who needs an accommodation in order to participate in any judicial proceeding or any other service, program, or activity of the Court, you are entitled, at no cost to you, to the provision of certain assistance. The ADA does not require the Court to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
If you require an accommodation under the ADA, it is recommended that you make your request as soon as possible or at least three (3) business days before your scheduled participation in any court proceeding or Court program or activity. All requests for accommodation, regardless of timeliness, will be given due consideration and if necessary, may require an interactive process between the requester and the Court to determine the best course of action.
To request a reasonable accommodation, please complete a Request for Reasonable Accommodation Form and return it to:
Nicole Brungard, Esquire
Office of the Court Administrator
Delaware County Courthouse
201 West Front Street
Media, PA 19063
