ABSTRACT
The author focuses on the effect of the U.S. Supreme Court decision on the case Davis versus Washington on the prosecution of domestic violence. She states that much of the important evidence available against the accused is hearsay in instances where a victim is unable or unwilling to testify. She notes that a constructive consequence of the case is that it compels prosecutors and advocates to re-evaluate, re-focus and re-strategize efforts in the prosecution of domestic violence.
