The report released Tuesday by the Task Force on Domestic Violence Cases in the New Hampshire Judicial Branch finds there are not enough resources in courts for victims of domestic violence, and there’s a lack of judicial accountability for when things go wrong.
Lyn Schollett, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, said the fact the Task Force was created at all shows that the judiciary is making some progress.
The Task Force brought together members of the public, advocates, attorneys, and judges to examine how the courts deal with domestic violence cases, and what can be done better. Schollett wants to see the judiciary open up more to create better communication between the courts and the public.
“I would hope to see improved communication among the judicial branch and other stakeholders,” she said.
