Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted to ensure that all qualified individuals with disabilities enjoy the same opportunities that are available to persons without disabilities.  It guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, state and local government services, and telecommunications.  Upon request, the Office of the Executive Secretary assists with ADA accommodations for public programs and services of Magistrates, District Court Clerks and Judges, Circuit Court and Appellate Court Judges and Justices, and the Clerks of the Supreme Court of Virginia and the Court of Appeals of Virginia.  Circuit Court Clerks, as local Constitutional officers, are responsible for ADA accommodations in their offices.
