Trinity Superior Court is dedicated to ensuring that all qualified individuals with disabilities have equal and full access to the judicial system.

WHAT IS ADA?

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and State law require all state and local entities, including the courts, to provide reasonable accommodations for the needs of persons with disabilities.


The ADA benefits people who have an interest in court activities, programs and services.
In 1996 the Judicial Council of California, the policy-making body for the courts, adopted California Rules of Court, rule 1.100 to implement the ADA in the state court system.


Under the ADA, State laws, and the court rule, a person is entitled to an accommodation if he or she is a person with a disability. This means the person has a physical or mental impairment that limits one or more life activities, has a record of such impairment, or is regarded of having such impairment.

 

WHEEL CHAIR ACCESS

Exterior ramps are available at the courthouse in Weaverville.  Both courtrooms will accomodate wheelchairs, as do the restrooms on the main floor.

 

AUDITORY IMPAIRMENTS

All courtrooms are equipped with a wireless Assistive Listening System that allows a person with auditory impairments to sit anywhere in the courtroom and hear the proceedings.

 

Should you wish to use the Assistive Listening System, simply ask the Court attendant or bailiff.
