Hearing Impaired/Communications Disabilities Notice

Notice Regarding Sign Language Interpreters & Other Auxiliary Aids & Services
It is the policy of the Judicial Conference of the United States that all Federal courts provide
reasonable accommodations to persons with communications disabilities.

If you are a debtor (the person who filed bankruptcy), a creditor (a person owed money from the
debtor) or other interested party to the bankruptcy case and you are deaf, hearing impaired or have
other communication disabilities, a sign language interpreter, assisted listening device, or
computer-assisted real- time reporting will be provided either by the Bankruptcy Court, or a sign
language interpreter will be provided by the United States Trustee, depending on the hearing,
without charge.

Assisted listening headsets are available for use by those with hearing impairments and are
available in Chattanooga, Knoxville, Greeneville and Winchester. See the courtroom clerk upon
entering the courtroom to request a headset.
