New Victim Law Bulletin Released

August 19, 2013

Our latest publication Ensuring Full Restitution for Crime Victims: Polyvictims as a Case Study in Overcoming Causation Challenges identifies emerging challenges to recovering full restitution for victims, and provides legal arguments and practical tips for overcoming these hurdles. The financial burden of victimization must rest with the perpetrator not the victim if the justice system is to properly function.  This latest Victim Law Bulletin is one component of our effort to advance the law and change the landscape of restitution.  Later this month we are filing a brief in the United States Supreme Court seeking full restitution for a victim.  Stay tuned!
