November 08, 2018

On October 18th, NCVLI, with co-amici Ohio Alliance of End Sexual Violence and Ohio Domestic Violence Network, filed an amicus curiae brief in support of victim privacy in the Ohio case of State v. Hughes.  The case involves the interpretation of Ohio’s Constitutional victims’ rights, Marsy’s Law.  This case presents issues of first impression and great importance for the victim and for all Ohio crime victims.  The victim is represented by the amazing legal team at the Ohio Crime Victim Justice Center.
