Gene Lyle, an interpreter for federal immigration court in Denver will be available one day a month to provide in-person Spanish interpretation. Defendants requiring Spanish translation can now request that their court days be scheduled on the days that Lyle will be present. The municipal court will continue to offer a call-in service for days that Lyle is not available, or if a language other than Spanish is required.
