Docket No. 2:14-cv-00162-wks
On February 10, 2015, Plaintiffs filed an Unopposed Motion to Request Transcriptionists

Plaintiffs’ Attorney Haben Girma is deafblind. Pursuant to “Guidelines for Providing

finds that speech-to-Braille transcription is an appropriate auxiliary service necessary to ensure
that Attorney Girma will be able to fully participate in the in-court proceedings in this matter.
Plaintiffs’ motion is, therefore, GRANTED, and plaintiffs’ attorneys are instructed to
cooperate as necessary with the Court Clerk to identify and secure, at the Judiciary’s expense,
satisfactory speech-to-Braille transcription services as described in the Motion.
DATED AT Burlington, in the District of Vermont, this 10th day of February, 2015.
