August brought some disturbing developments in several domestic violence court cases in Maryland
(see links to stories below). August also brought federal convictions in the 2015 murder of Karlyn Ramirez by her husband and his mistress. Ramirez
was an active duty soldier at Fort Mead.
All these cases highlight important systemic problems worth thinking about and addressing.
In several weeks Court Watch volunteers will start collecting a new set of data in domestic violence courtrooms. We'll keep you updated on what we learn.
We hope you'll work with us to push for needed reforms to make sure that domestic violence victims and survivors have true access to justice.
