Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted by Congress in 1990 to protect individuals with disabilities from discrimination in access to employment, governmental services and programs, public accommodations, transportation, and telecommunications. As stated in the law, the ADA is "an Act to establish a clear and comprehensive prohibition of discrimination on the basis of disability."

The Sixteenth Judicial Circuit of Florida is in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and provides reasonable accommodations to persons with disabilities to enable their full participation in court proceedings, programs or services.
