President Judge's Order
Americans with Disabilities Act (Title II) Grievance Procedure
ADA Accommodation Form
ADA Grievance Form

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, 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 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 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.

It has been and will continue to be the policy of this judicial district to prohibit discrimination against all individuals – including those with substance use disorder – in accessing or participating in judicial proceedings or other Court services, programs, or activities. Further, this Court recognizes the United States Department of Justice’s position regarding physician prescribed medications and treatment and will continue to appropriately implement such.

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:
