Supreme Court to Hear Domestic Violence Cases

"THE Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments today in two cases that may make domestic violence cases all but impossible to prosecute. The cases, Davis v. Washington and Hammon v. Indiana, raise the question of whether statements made to 911 operators can be admitted in prosecutions if those who made the calls refuse to appear in court. Such evidence has become crucial in bringing domestic abusers to justice." By Michael Rips & Amy Lester, Op-Ed Contributors, New York Times Link to Article (last visited 3-20-06 NVS)
