Two litigants complained the L.A. courts did not give them interpreters
The U.S. Department of Justice called on the L.A. County courts and the state’s Judicial Council to improve access to interpreters for litigants with limited English-language skills after the agency received a complaint. The complaint was filed by the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles on behalf of two low-income clients. One had been sexually assaulted and sought a restraining order against her attacker, the other had filed for custody and child support for her son. Both were denied Korean interpreters.
