New Ohio rule calls for hiring court interpreters



Published: Mon, July 18, 2011 @ 1:44 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio courts will be required to hire a foreign language or sign language interpreter in some cases, under a new rule adopted by the state Supreme Court.

The state’s highest court announced today that the rule taking effect Jan. 1, 2013 says an interpreter must be paid for if the service is necessary to allow a person involved in a court case to participate meaningfully.

The Supreme Court in February certified a group of court interpreters for the first time. Officials say Ohio courts handle more than 25,000 cases a year that require an interpreter and accommodate about 80 languages.
