Court Cases About Access to CART

A recent court case provided a victory for students who are deaf and hard of hearing to gain access to Computer-Assisted Realtime Transcription (CART) as an accommodation in mainstream K-12 classrooms. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the plaintiff in K.M. v. Tustin Unified School District (No. 11-56259) that school districts must consider student's request for CART. This case is bolstered by a similar decision in the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals which ruled in favor of the plaintiff in Argenyi v. Creighton University (No. 11-3336), a similar case involving a medical school student.
