Wyoming Judicial Branch Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) was enacted to prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities. Specifically outlined in Title II of the ADA is the principle that no qualified person with a disability should face exclusion from participating in or be denied the benefits derived from public programs, services, or activities offered by a public entity. This legal mandate extends to the Wyoming state courts, positioned as providers of public programs, services, and activities. In accordance with the ADA, individuals with disabilities are entitled to an equal opportunity to access, utilize, and actively participate in court programs, services, and activities. The overarching goal is to ensure that no one faces discrimination based on their disability, fostering an environment of equal access and inclusion.

The Wyoming Judicial Branch and the Wyoming Judicial Council are committed to ensuring equal access and comprehensive participation in court programs, services, and activities for all qualified individuals with disabilities. This dedication extends to a diverse array of stakeholders within the legal system, including attorneys, litigants, defendants, probationers, witnesses, victims, potential jurors, and members of the public observing court proceedings. The Wyoming Judicial Branch actively strives to cultivate an inclusive environment that addresses the unique needs of individuals with disabilities, thereby fostering a legal system that not only values diversity but also ensures that everyone can fully and effectively engage within the court setting. In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Wyoming Judicial Branch will provide reasonable accommodations to enable qualified individuals with disabilities to access all its programs, services, and activities.
