Victims of gender-based violence often disclose intimate details of their private lives and their victimization to multiple professionals over the course of a case. Furthermore, a victim’s cell phone, computer, or social media accounts may contain relevant evidence, that raises additional privacy concerns. Prosecutors have an obligation to provide the defense with all evidence in the government’s possession or control that is material to a defendant’s guilt or punishment. How can we fulfill that obligation, while at the same time safeguarding victim privacy against unnecessary disclosure? How do these privacy considerations and obligations affect the practice of victim attorneys? These cases present unique ethical challenges related to privacy and confidentiality, prosecutorial discretion, recantation, and disclosure of evidence. In this training, the presenters will use hypothetical case scenarios to:

  • Address ethical considerations in the context of discovery obligations, digital evidence, the investigative function of the prosecutor, and the role of the victim’s attorney;

  • Identify confidential, privileged, non-material, and/or irrelevant victim information and records;

  • Discuss strategies to prevent unnecessary disclosure of evidence;

  • Introduce pretrial and trial strategies that support the protection of victim privacy.

Hidden in Plain Sight: Big Data and Survivor Privacy

MCLE Accreditation:  This training has been approved for 1.5 general MCLE credit with the State Bar of California and the Oregon State Bar (OSB Program No. 4134*51). The training may be eligible for MCLE credit in other states; a certificate of attendance will be available after the program.
Duration:  90 minutes (1.5 credit)
Original Program Date:  Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Presenter:  Valenda Applegarth, J.D., Senior Attorney, Greater Boston Legal Services. 

Description:  Survivors who have fled abuse or stalking often struggle to maintain privacy in our digital age. Data brokers compile personal information from public records, social media, the US Postal Service, retailers, insurance and banking, credit bureaus and more. Personal information ends up on the internet and is available to anyone for a price. Facial recognition technology makes it easier to connect personal and identity information to a digital photograph. All of this information is a threat to survivors' privacy, and even to their basic safety. Survivors can also find it hard to keep personal information private while meeting needs like income and housing. Information about past abuse can surface years later, impacting healing. This training will look at how public and private information become available online and how advocates and the survivors they help can control or stop the flow of that data.

What Happens When Criminal Defendants Fail to Pay Restitution CLE Training

MCLE Accreditation:  This training has been approved for 1.0 general MCLE credit with the State Bar of California and the Oregon State Bar (OSB Program No. 4134*50). The training may be eligible for MCLE credit in other states; a certificate of attendance will be available after the program.
Duration:  65 minutes (1.0 credit)
Original Program Date:  Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Presenter:  Randall Udelman, Esq., Member, Udelman Law Firm, P.L.C., and Co-founder, Arizona Crime Victim Rights Law Group.  Mr. Udelman's bio is available here.

Description:  Crime victims often suffer immeasurable harm as a result of the crime. Restitution is one mechanism by which the criminal justice system can ensure that the perpetrators, not the victims, bear the burden of crime victims’ economic losses. Fortunately, every jurisdiction has laws in place addressing restitution, and dozens of jurisdictions provide victims with constitutional and statutory rights to full restitution in every case. Every jurisdiction also has laws in place to help enforce restitution orders--including availability of sanctions, among other criminal consequences, and the designation of government agencies to help collect restitution for victims. Unfortunately, the reality is that despite these laws, victims are fighting every day to secure the full amount of restitution ordered by the criminal courts. This program will address securing collection of restitution from the perspective of a victims’ attorney. The presenter will focus on collecting restitution, relying on tools available to victims' attorneys in both civil and criminal courts, outlining key steps for victims’ attorneys to consider, identifying common challenges, and highlighting some litigation strategies to help maximize recovery of the amounts due from the perpetrators.
