Yes:
- rename the directories on the server before you check out so that they
have really different names, not just upper/lowercase. Or, if one of the
two folders is just there by accident, delete it on the server.
- you can also check out a sparse working copy which contains only one
of the two folders
<http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-dug-checkout.html>.

But generally you should avoid this situation in the first place, so
most important: install a pre-commit hook on the server that prevents
people from checking in files/folders which differ only in case.
