Just in case anyone is interested in following up, the special journal
issue focusing on the "Bilingual, Bimodal Courtroom" which was mentioned by
Ellen L. Contini-Morava (in connection with Deaf people's experiences in
the legal system) will be an issue of the _Journal of Interpretation_
and not, as the original message noted, of _Sign Language Studies_.
