Latest Appeals Case Update: Thank you, Crowell!

Justice was served last week in the Maryland Court of Appeals for a DV LEAP client and her children who suffered severe abuse at the hands of the husband/father. The Court ruled that the perpetrator must demonstrate no likelihood of future abuse and confirmed that the lower court's appointment of his grandmother to supervise visitation, failed to ensure the children's safety.

The amicus brief was crafted by attorneys Trina Barlow, Leigh Colihan and Christine Hawes from Crowell & Moring, LLP and DV LEAP's managing attorney Sasha Drobnick.

Thank you to these organizations for signing on to this brief:  
* Women's Law Center of Maryland  * House of Ruth Maryland
* Maryland Network against Domestic Violence  * Child Justice

This case is an important victory for survivors and the domestic violence community!
