State v. Juracan-Juracan, 255 N.J. 241 (2023)


Alan Silber argued before the New Jersey Supreme Court on behalf of amicus curiae ACDL-NJ that virtual interpretation--especially in this case, where two interpreters are required--deprives defendant of his right to an effective interpreter, which impedes his constitutional right to a fair trial. The Court agreed with Juracan and amici, creating a presumption that foreign language interpretation services will be provided in person during criminal trials. The Court provided additional guidelines for how to assess whether to provide virtual or in-person interpretation in future cases.
