Accommodation Procedures for Doing Business with the Judiciary (for Users of the Courts)
Maryland Rule 1-332. Notification of need for accommodation.
A person requesting an accommodation under the Americans With Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. §12101, et seq., for an attorney, a party, a witness, or a spectator, shall notify the court promptly.
