I know I have done similar forums to this one but I found a very good case regarding Title VI of the Civil Rights act.

Lau V. Nichols

The United States Supreme
Court held that the San Francisco
School District violated Title VI by failing to take affirmative steps to assist LEP Chinese students.

Lau and subsequent cases interpret Title VI as obligating recipients of federal funds to provide language services. However, in the past, the federal
government had not done enough to assist recipients of federal funds in understanding the scope of Title
VI or in assisting recipients in complying with Title VI.

Anybody know of any other cases such as this one? Please share!

Title VI Mar 2, 2007

http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/lepfinal.htm has some general information about Title VI. If you want to find some case law about Title VI, I recommend using a site such as http://www.findlaw.com . Title VI requires that recipients of federal aid provide interpreting services for people with limited English proficiency, and thus this provision of law has an impact on interpreters and translators.
