The NJ Administrative Office of the Courts court recently clarified the policy on whether the court must provide a spoken language interpreter for events which happen outside of the courthouse. Court assigned mediation, outside of foreclosure mediation, is typically done at the mediator’s or an attorney’s office. The clarification to directive 3-04 states that any mediator who requires an interpreter in any court assigned mediation should hold the mediation at the courthouse. The court will then provide an interpreter at the court’s cost. This directive does not apply to interpreters for the deaf as that gets into ADA issues.
