Additional
Information:
Imagine: a sexual assault victim who has reported, criminal prosecution is proceeding, and she seeks a protective order against the perpetrator; a domestic violence victim whose partner is being prosecuted is also involved in a divorce and custody proceeding. As part of these civil proceedings, defendants serve subpoenas demanding that the victims submit to depositions and turn over personal records. All at once safety and privacy are compromised all over again. How can victims' rights help protect the victims? In this webinar the presenter will discuss how and when a victim may seek to limit civil proceedings, including discovery, during the pendency of the offender's related criminal case.
