Hello, Your friend should obtain a statement from his doctor/therapist or other competent medical or educational provider that will sign an affidavit about his deficits and to verify that it is a valid disability and then should file a Motion with the court to submit all discovery questions as Interrogatories (written questions). There may be a hearing on the matter, but if it is a valid disability the court will use its discretion to decide what accomodations must be used in his legal case. He should probably also contact the local Legal aid or Human right organization to find out if he can get any outside help with this matter. Often they have had other similar cases, such as people with hearing difficulties, mental problems, or other disabilities and have successfully presented the problem to the court for the proper accomodations. Please follow up with any questions.
That is great information! He wanted to know if the disability merits it can he also request to be able to answer in writing?
Also he wanted to know if he could request an appointed counselor for depositions via 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(1).? and also for the entire case since he's in forma pauperis?
I guess you must be gone
Thank you very much for your responses. Very good information!
