In accordance with Supreme Court Administrative Order 2013-8, our court established a Language Access Plan (LAP) to provide for the language access needs of court users. This LAP is the plan for the court to ensure meaningful access to court services for persons with limited English proficiency (LEP). A limited English proficient person is a person who does not speak English as his or her primary language, and who has a limited ability to read, write, speak or understand English, and by reason of his or her limitations, is not able to understand and meaningfully participate in the court process. The purpose of the plan is to provide a framework for the provision of timely and effective language assistance to LEP persons who come in contact with the court.

The court has appointed a language access coordinator to be a contact person for the public, court staff and SCAO concerning this plan and its implementation. The language access coordinator may be contacted through the court administrator's office at 734-222-3270.
