Domestic violence cases in the court system need to be observed regularly to keep the system working properly to protect the victims. Court Watch Montgomery volunteers work tirelessly to collect data in hundreds of hearings to make sure Maryland judges are held accountable and victims get the help they need from advocates in the courthouse. Court Watch reports are submitted to show the need for change and to keep the problem of domestic violence in the forefront with the general public, elected officials, press and court staff.
This news category shares stories from court regarding the judges, other court employees, the outcome of Montgomery County domestic violence cases and more. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us to learn more about the work we do to help reduce intimate partner violence.
