    Answered . I am a California attorney and cannot give legal advice in your state. My comments are information only, based on federal law and general legal principles. YOUR STATE MAY HAVE ITS OWN LAWS THAT OFFER SIMILAR OR GREATER PROTECTION. If I mention your state’s laws, it only means I did a quick Internet search and found something that looked relevant. You MUST check with an attorney licensed in your state to learn your rights.

    Courts are required to provide reasonable accommodation for people with disabilities, physical or mental. There isn't enough information in your question to understand if there is a connection between your disability and what the court did. You might contact New York Protection and Advocacy. http://cqc.ny.gov/advocacy/protection-advocacy-... If they cannot help you, ask for referrals to agencies or attorneys who may be helpful. Attorney Aaron Frishberg in New York City handles cases involving mental disability. You might contact him.

    Answered . consult an attorney immediately. There are tolling provisions for statutes of limitations, a mental disability may be one such provision. You cannot sue a court, you can only appeal such a ruling.
