It is the policy of the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts (NCAOC) to make every reasonable effort to ensure that individuals with disabilities have equal access to the courts.
The NCAOC has a procedure to resolve complaints alleging action by the Judicial Branch that would be prohibited by federal regulations contained in Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Title II of the ADA 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 to discrimination by any such entity.” 42 U.S.C. § 12132.
NOTE: If a judge or judicial officer in a proceeding denied a request for accommodations, that denial may only be reviewed through the regular judicial review process.
