On March 8th, 2016 a U.S. District Court Judge in the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division granted RID’s Motion for Summary Judgment in the matter of John Krpan, Plaintiff v. Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, Inc. As a result, a judgment in favor of RID was entered. On Count I, the court determined that the NIC exam and certification process do not violate Title III of the ADA. In terms of Count II, the court determined that the CDI exam and certification do not violate Title III of the ADA by labeling CDI credentialed individuals as “deaf”. RID will continue to work diligently to uphold and defend the testing and certification standards adopted by the association.
