Cuomo will need to have ASL translator at all daily briefings moving forward

A federal judge has ordered that Governor Andrew Cuomo add an ASL translator to his live daily briefings.

Disability rights advocates sued the Governor earlier in the month. This due to there not being an interpreter on live television.

He does have an interpreter for the livestream, which appears online, but not one for in-person interaction.

State Attorney General Tish James said there are technical issues to comply with the order for Tuesday, but the order will be followed starting on Wednesday, according to News10NBC.
