The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities. Under this law, people with disabilities are entitled to all of the rights, privileges, advantages, and opportunities that others have when participating in civic activities, including jury duty. This can apply to the physical access required to be a juror like courthouse or courtroom access as well as self-service functions available to the public, like online services, communications, and software. The question, then, is how can your jury management system accommodate someone with a disability with the same access as everyone else? How can we achieve this? Where are the areas to focus on?
