Americans with Disabilities Act

Lawrence County, Pa - Court of Common Pleas

The Unified Judicial System of Pennsylvania (UJS) and the Court of Common Pleas of Lawrence County, PA comply with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which 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.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 any other service, program, or activity of the UJS, you are entitled, at no cost to you, to the provision of certain assistance. The ADA does not require the Lawrence County Court of Common Pleas to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.

 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 UJS 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 requestor and the Lawrence County Court of Common Pleas to determine the best course of action.
