TX man: No Terp Provided

A Houston man is suing Harris County because the constable's office failed to provide him with an interpreter. Andy Scofield, who is deaf, says in legal filing that he was hit by a neighbor and bit by the man's dog, but when authorities arrived he was not provided a a sign language interpreter so he could tell what happened - even though he asked for one. His teenage son was expected to speak for his father, although the boy is hard of hearing.
