New Video Available for Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Posted: Friday, August 2, 2013

The Judicial Branch has created, “Going to Court: Tips for Minnesotans who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing,” a 20-minute video providing essential information to help ensure that people who are deaf or hard of hearing have equal access to participate in cases in Minnesota state courts. The video is presented in American Sign Language and is captioned.

Courts of law can be confusing and intimidating for people unfamiliar with legal rules and practices. They can be especially so for people with particular communication needs. The new video will help those who are deaf or hard of hearing prepare for a court appearance, including what to expect and how to request communication assistance.
