AT&T SETTLES FCC'S TRS BILLING PROBE FOR $18.25 MILLION
AT&T Inc. has agreed to pay $18.25 million to settle an investigation by the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau into whether the company improperly billed the Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) fund for certain IP Relay (Internet-based TRS) calls. Among the issues under investigation were whether AT&T billed the fund for IP Relay calls by persons whom the company registered for the service without first requiring them to provide such basic information as their names, and by persons whose registration information the company failed to adequately verify. / FCC.gov

CHILD VICTIMS EYE CIVIL ACTION FOR ALLEGED MOLESTATION AT NEW YORK SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF
Marlene Hodge was only 7 when her dorm supervisor, the man responsible for looking after 25 girl boarders at New York School for the Deaf, allegedly crawled into her bed at night and molested her. Joe Casucci was the dorm father at the White Plains school known as Fanwood, and he allegedly did the same to an untold number of girls, some as young as 3, over the course of the 1960s and 1970s. The school fired Casucci, who is now dead, in 1979 after three girls reported being touched by him, but Hodge and a group of nearly 12 other victims are speaking out, asking for an investigation into how the school handled his dismissal, saying Fanwood never notified law enforcement of his alleged crimes. / ABC News

BOARD TO HIRE PRIVATE EYE TO LOOK AT ISSUES AT ARIZONA STATE SCHOOLS FOR THE DEAF AND THE BLIND
The Governing Board of the Arizona State Schools for the Deaf and the Blind will hire a private investigator who, with the assistance of the Attorney General's Office, will look into complaints filed by five employees against the school's superintendent. The board instructed board member Michael Williams to initiate the investigation after hearing a parade of parents, students and employees call for the resignation of Superintendent Robert Hill and Board President Bernhardt Jones. Tuesday's meeting was held specifically to address the complaints and mounting criticism of the school's two leaders. About 150 people filled the room for the meeting, which was raucous and featured several interruptions from the crowd and board members. / Arizona Daily Star

IN NETFLIX CAPTIONING CASE, AN UNEXPECTED FEE FIGHT
The suit didn't get far. But that isn't stopping both sides from claiming victory in a disability rights class action against Netflix Inc. over closed captioning for the deaf. In dueling briefs in San Jose federal court, lawyers for plaintiff Donald Cullen and for Netflix argue they technically prevailed in the discrimination case and should recover attorney fees. Cullen, a deaf college student represented by San Diego-based Gregory Weston of The Weston Firm, is seeking fees of $262,641. Meanwhile, Netflix says it should receive $165,000 from Cullen to pay lawyers from the Los Angeles office of Morrison & Foerster. / The American Lawyer

DEAF WOMAN SEEKS CHRISTIE'S HELP WITH FEMA
Amanda Klinger said she knew when she walked into Gov. Chris Christie’s town hall meeting Tuesday it was time to get loud about being deaf. Klinger, 39, of Beach Haven, lost her hearing almost 14 years ago, the same year she opened her business Paint a Pot in Long Beach Township. On Tuesday, she was looking for Christie’s help in bettering communication for deaf people with government agencies such as FEMA, but said she wasn’t surprised when she arrived at the St. Francis of Assisi Parish Community Center in the township’s Brant Beach section and there was no interpreter or caption system. / Press of Atlantic City

OMAHA TRIAL ON DEAF MEDICAL STUDENT'S LAWSUIT SET
Jury trial has been set in the case of a man who accuses Creighton University in a lawsuit of discriminating against him because he is deaf. The trial is set for the week of Aug. 20 in Omaha's federal court. The trial comes after the U.S. 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in March said a jury should be allowed to decide whether Creighton discriminated against medical school student Michael Argenyi. The ruling reversed a lower court's dismissal of Argenyi's lawsuit. / Associated Press

ST. PAUL POLICE TO ADD INTERPRETERS FOR THE DEAF
St. Paul police are planning to change the way they communicate with hearing-impaired people as part of an expected settlement between the city and a deaf man who alleges he was mistreated after asking for police to communicate with him in writing during a traffic stop. Deaf activist Douglas Bahl and his attorney are expected to be awarded $93,450, most of which will go to legal fees, after the St. Paul City Council approves the settlement in a Wednesday meeting. In addition to the money, the agreement stipulates that St. Paul police will provide qualified sign language interpreters and train its staff on the communication needs of those who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. / Star Tribune

STATE APPROVES $4.2 MILLION BOND SALE TO FUND AMERICAN SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF, DEMOLITION OF GALLAUDET HALL
The State Bond Commission recently approved the sale of $4.2 million in bonds to help the American School for the Deaf (ASD). The bond proceeds will be used for the demolition of Gallaudet Hall, relocation of the central heating facilities and roadway reconstruction at the school’s campus in West Hartford.

FLORIDA'S DEAF INMATES NEED TO BE SEEN AND HEARD
The abuse experienced by deaf prisoners housed in the Florida Department of Corrections defies imagination. HEARD's Deaf and Deaf-Blind Prisoner Database includes information on more than 400 men and women, in 38 states, the District of Columbia, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons. The abuse and violations occuring in Florida are, by far, the worst that we have seen. Florida's most vulnerable prisoners — those who are deaf, deaf-blind, blind, elderly and mentally and physically disabled — are the victims of extreme violence and sexual abuse. We have reported these abuses for nearly three years to no avail. / Sun Sentinel

GERRY HUGHES BECOMES FIRST DEAF PERSON TO SAIL ROUND THE WORLD
A Scottish teacher has become the first deaf person to sail single-handed around the world past all five capes. Gerry Hughes, 55, from Glasgow, sailed from Gourock, Inverclyde, in his boat Quest III, on 1 September last year. His solo-circumnavigation lasted eight months and covered more than 32,000 miles, during which time he endured a capsize and equipment problems. After arriving back at Troon marina on Wednesday, Mr Hughes said he had finally achieved a life-long ambition. "The last eight months have been amongst the toughest of my life but despite all the challenges of the expedition, it has been a period I have thoroughly enjoyed," he said. / BBC News

LACK OF BRITISH SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETERS PUTTING DEAF PEOPLE AT RISK
It is traumatic enough being rushed to hospital in an emergency, but what if you couldn't understand the doctors talking to you about what was wrong – and you woke up after an operation still not knowing the full story? That is what happened to profoundly deaf patient Elaine Duncan when she was admitted to Dundee's Ninewells hospital. Although British Sign Language is her first language, Duncan wasn't given access to a sign language interpreter at any point during her 12-day stay, which included surgery to remove her appendix. / The Guardian

SANDY LIBRARY'S DEAF USERS LEFT OUT OF THE LOOP
A councillor has accused an authority of breaking the law after it revamped a library but neglected to post proper signage for its loop system for the deaf. Sandy Town councillor, Ken Lynch, has complained that Sandy Library, which Central Bedfordshire Council recently gave a £47,000 revamp, should make it better known that a loop system is available. Mr Lynch, who is hard of hearing, has said he intends to seek legal advice. He said: “I’ve got the paperwork that says it’s illegal and I think the council should have known that." / Bedfordshire News

ONE DIRECTION SONGS TO BE TRANSLATED IN SIGN LANGUAGE FOR DEAF AWARENESS WEEK
One Direction's songs are set to get a makeover when they will be translated into sign language during Deaf Awareness Week in Norfolk.

The Norfolk County Council's Sensory Support Unit will be hosting the event on May 8 where members of the public will be invited to perform their songs in British Sign Language while they will also be given the opportunity to learn more about the deaf community. / Entertainmentwise

DEAF CLIENT CALLS OUT TD AFTER COMMUNICATION FAILURE
Kathryn Woodcock likes to reserve her own airline flights on the Internet. While booking a complex itinerary this week, she learned that her credit card had been declined. “I knew I had bags of credit left, since I never carry a balance,” says Woodcock, an associate professor of ergonomics at Ryerson University’s school of occupational and public health. She uses a TD Travel Infinite Visa as her sole credit card. Credit card issuers can decline a purchase if they detect an unusual pattern of spending. Their next step is to call the cardholder to see if the transactions were authorized. But Woodcock can’t be reached by phone. She is deaf and prefers to use email, text messages and social media to communicate. / Toronto Star

DISABILITY LEAVES INDIAN DEAF CRICKET TEAM STRANDED
The Indian deaf cricket team, who were invited to play a week of cricket matches, were not allowed to board the connecting flight from Bangkok airways to Chiang Mai. The company policy stated the reason was their disability to hear. David Buck, the Director for cricket at Prem’s academy, had the shock of his life when he heard that the Indian deaf cricket players were left stranded and were not allowed to board the flight to Chiang Mai due to company policy. “We had arranged to sponsor the team to play here,” said Buck, who explained that the deaf cricket federation in India consisted of a very large pool of cricketers, but only 23 players had been chosen to play in Chiang Mai. / Sportskeeda

DEAF SENIORS SEEK A RETIREMENT HOME OF THEIR OWN
Baby boomers in search of a South Florida retirement community look for certain amenities: accessible apartments, activities, on-site nurses. But if you're severely hearing impaired, you also may need sign language interpreters, video phones, movie captions and other deaf-friendly services. Most retirement communities, assisted living centers or nursing homes say they can't meet all the needs of the "signing" deaf, most of whom were born with their disability or lost their hearing before they learned to talk and are dependent on American Sign Language. Two South Florida senior communities are hoping to change that. / Sun Sentinel

DEAF CULTURE SEEKS RESPECT, EMPOWERMENT
Donald Lee Haring had a classic Indiana high school experience. He was on the football, basketball and track teams at one time or another. He made friends. He learned — especially about math, which he later taught. Other than missing his parents, who lived on a farm a couple of hours away, he didn't feel his life was so different from anybody else's. The University of Illinois American Sign Language instructor certainly didn't feel "impaired." / The News-Gazette

STUDENTS FROM 14 STATES ATTEND DEAF SPACE CAMP
Students came from near and far to attend Space Camp in Huntsville last week. This group consisted of deaf students from Maryland to Utah, all to get hands-on experience with technology. Many of the students had wonderful things to say about their experience in the Rocket City. “They have a lot of things here that are very interactive,” said John Walker of Maryland School for the Deaf. “I’m absolutely fascinated by some of the things I’ve done, some things I’ve absolutely hated because they really challenged me but its been so cool learning about space, about NASA,” said Itzel Garcia, of Jean Massieu School of the Deaf. / WHNT

THE DOG WILL SEE YOU NOW
Deaf students at General Johnnie Wilson Middle School use sign language to give Sawyer commands, but don’t need it to communicate their appreciation for the certified therapy dog. Sawyer was greeted with smiles Wednesday in teacher Jane Lewis’ classroom. Hugs and “high tens” — in which Sawyer stood on his hind legs and touched his front paws against the children’s outstretched palms — came later. The visit was Sawyer’s second to the class as part of a new dog therapy program designed to improve students’ socialization skills. / The Chronicle-Telegram

HAVE YOU HEARD THE ONE ABOUT THE DEAF DACHSHUND?
Most dogs give little indication they understand anything you say to them, with a few exceptions. Almost all of them will jump and yip or come in for pets and loves after hearing anything that sounds like baby talk. Even “Shame on you, you atrocious little serial killer,” works fine in the right tone of voice. But it’s all wasted on Georgie the Glencoe dachshund. Georgie, entering his 14th summer, is deaf as a post. / Glencoe News

DEAF WEB USER WANTS EBAY DISCRIMINATION SUIT REVIVED
A deaf Web user who unsuccessfully attempted to sell used books on eBay is asking a federal appellate court to revive her discrimination lawsuit against the online auction site. Missouri resident Melissa Earll argues that eBay's policy of requiring sellers to use a telephone to confirm their identities made it impossible for her to sell goods on the service. She contends that eBay's policy violates the federal Americans with Disabilities Act as well as California's anti-discrimination laws. A federal district court judge in northern California dismissed Earll's claims last year, ruling that the federal ADA doesn't apply to online companies like eBay. Earll is now asking the 9th Circuit to revive her case. / Media Post

Twenty deaf and hard of hearing people jumped at the opportunity to learn from, and teach, the Rochester Police Department, "how the deaf community can teach the police things, how to approach a deaf person, if a person is on a pullover, if they've been arrested, there's so many things that we were hoping to be able to teach the officers," said Sylvia Sirianni a graduate of the RPD Citizen's Police Academy. The class helps students better understand how the department operates, "so there's not a misunderstanding between the deaf community and the police officers," explained Renee Nicholls, the R.P.D's liaison to the deaf and hard of hearing community. / WROC

Word choice can be tricky. In an age where filters only apply to Instagram pics, no one really stops to think about the words they choose and the meanings attached to them. But when you’re speaking to linguistics and deaf studies major Martin Watkins, 22, you might just have to think twice. Watkins can’t help but be “intrigued” by the way individuals communicate. His fields of study area a perfect marriage for examining how humans interact. “[I] am basically learning how to analyze someone’s speech and understand what they’re saying, how they’re saying it and what they intend to say by it and giving it in a second language,” he said. / Daily Sundial

THE GOOD BOY - REVIEW
Walking into the Dorothy Strelsin Theatre is a bit like stepping into a psychologist's office. With a comfy armchair and oversized credenza taking up a huge portion of the limited stage real estate, little space is left between the audience and the sweating nebbish who inhabits the set. That would be Michael Bonnabel, author and star of the autobiographical solo show The Good Boy, now receiving its New York premiere from the Abingdon Theatre Company. As it turns out, this is a particularly intense therapy session. The content of this play is extremely personal and very real, so only attend if you are prepared to have a good cry. / Theater Mania

DEAF ARTIST CREATES SOUND INSTALLATIONS THAT EVERYONE CAN HEAR
Christine Sun Kim is a visual and performance artist who is trying to ‘unlearn’ sound etiquette. As a deaf person, Christine has mostly experienced sound only through the reactions of others, who have exercised a form of control over it as hearing people who can dictate what constitutes acceptable uses of sound. Her art explores technological ways of experiencing sound that do not involve other people, thereby freeing her of any societal constraints, which allows her creative installations to push boundaries and gets people to experience sound in new ways. / PSFK
