Rule 1.4. Interpreters and Accommodation for Disabilities
A. It shall be the responsibility of a superior court judge or the court administrator to obtain qualified persons to serve as interpreters in proceedings and to furnish necessary accommodations to persons with disabilities in civil and criminal proceedings.
B. Counsel must make arrangements to provide their own interpreters in civil proceedings (except habeas corpus actions) when they desire to have the civil proceedings translated at counsel's table. The court will provide an interpreter for witnesses in civil and criminal proceedings, but a 30-day advance notice of need is required.

It shall be the responsibility of counsel or a party in need of an interpreter or a special accommodation to notify the court administrator of that need at least (30) business days in advance of the hearing or trial. Failure to provide timely notice of this need may result in the imposition of sanctions and/or postponement of the proceedings.
