District Court refuses to pay the public expenditure of sign-language interpreting for Deaf woman

July 24, 2012

A Deaf woman (41), an office worker in Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture, filed the lawsuit in quest of cancellation of the disposal against the city, which declined her suburban dispatch application of sign-language interpreting, as their act being against the constitution, etc.

Female defense counsel had submitted the written letter to the Takamatsu District Court to provide the woman with the sign language interpreter with a public expenditure, etc. on July 23.

Defense counsel announced today that the Court replied they would refuse the demand.
