Department of Justice (DOJ), Civil Rights Division

The Department of Justice (DOJ) began investigating the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) in April of 2007 after receiving a complaint that the courts were not providing limited English proficient (LEP) individuals with meaningful access to the courts. In May 2011, a second complaint was filed regarding the AOC services available to LEP individuals. DOJ's Civil Rights Division did an investigation and issued a letter finding the NC AOC in violation of Title VI for failing to provide interpreters and access to appropriate language services to LEP individuals.
