Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project
We are thrilled to share a major victory in the DC Court of Appeals concerning the rights of unrelated sexual assault victims to adequate civil protection orders, including an order to the perpetrator to vacate his own apartment where doing so is necessary to effectuate a meaningful stay-away order.  DV LEAP is grateful to Cleary Gottlieb for its superb work on our amicus brief in the case; and to Skadden Arps for their topnotch representation of the victim.
