Judge Eugene Hyman JD ’77 wrote an op-ed for the San Francisco Daily Journal about how legal system silos are harming domestic violence victims. Read the op-ed (a subscription is required).
“A victim of domestic violence is expected to speak to dozens of players up and down the chain of our various legal systems, from doctors and police officers to social workers and judges. The system does this victim a disservice by not requiring these public servents to speak to one another.”
Judge Hyman is retired from the Santa Clara County Superior Court, where he presided over cases in the criminal, civil, probate, family, and delinquency divisions for 20 years.
