Services Provided to the Hearing Impaired and Persons with Communications Disabilities

It is the policy of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of the Western District of Pennsylvania (the “Court”) to provide reasonable accommodations to participants in court proceedings who have communicative disabilities. Participants in court proceedings include parties in the case, attorneys, and witnesses who are deemed qualified to serve the court. Reasonable accommodations to participants in federal court proceedings include sign language interpreters and other appropriate auxiliary aids to all deaf, hearing impaired, or participants having other communications disabilities.

Individuals seeking assistance should contact the Court’s Access Coordinator at least two weeks in advance of the scheduled court proceeding, or upon notification, to allow for the review of the request and arrangement of appropriate accommodations. Contact may be made by telephone, fax, in writing, or in person.
