Americans with Disability Access to Courts (ADA)
An individual with a disability means a person covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (42 USC 12101 et seq.) and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, and includes individuals who have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity, has a record of such an impairment or are regarded as having such an impairment.
Qualified individual with a disability can be any person involved in a case, such as lawyers, parties, witnesses, or jurors but also include spectators or anyone else eligible to participate in a program, service or proceeding in a court of Michigan.
