Latest Appeals Case Update: Thank You, O'Melveny!

In December, our amazing pro-bono lawyers Greg Jacob and Mishima Alam from O’Melveny argued in front of the Connecticut Supreme Court. The case raises a legal question that has never been settled under CT law.

The question of does a wife become a criminal trespasser justifying a husband’s use of violent force against her because she refuses the husband’s request that she leave their home and she is not on the title?

We are excited for this opportunity to create change in CT laws for a safer future for women. Thank you, Greg and Mishima. You are truly#DVLEAPSuperHeros
