WH Sued Over Lack Of ASL At COVID-19 Briefings

CNN reports:

The National Association of the Deaf and five deaf Americans are suing the White House in an attempt to force President Donald Trump and other top officials to have American Sign Language interpreters at Covid-19 briefings.

They’ve asked a federal judge to order the White House to add live televised ASL interpretation at all public coronavirus briefings.

“The White House’s failure to provide ASL interpreters during Covid-19 related briefings, including press briefings, is against the law,” the new lawsuit in DC District Court said on Monday. The lawsuit claims the lack of live sign language interpretation violates the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
