The Utah County Republican Party and Utah Republican Party have settled a lawsuit filed by two party members over the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Provo Daily Herald reports as part of the settlement the Utah Republican Party will update “its governing documents to reflect that ADA compliance is mandated for its political caucuses and conventions.” Court documents say Aaron Heineman, who is deaf, tried to arrange for an American Sign Language interpreter in 2016 to attend a local caucus so he could participate and give prepared remarks. The lawsuit says the county GOP planned to have an interpreter from Interwest Interpreting Agency attend but canceled after the precinct chair said they had arranged for other interpreters to be there.
