Editors' Notes

COMMENTARY
Acceptance of a case by a sworn proceedings interpreter conveys linguistic competency in legal settings. Withdrawing or being asked to withdraw from a case after it begins disrupts court proceedings and wastes scarce public resources. It is therefore essential that sworn proceedings interpreters present a complete and truthful account of their training, certification, and experience prior to appointment so the officers of the court can fairly evaluate their qualifications for delivering interpreting services.
