Description:  Crime victims often find themselves having to navigate the civil justice system to obtain protective orders or civil damages.  Attorneys representing crime victims who want to maintain their privacy must challenge the presumptions in favor of naming parties to a civil lawsuit and of allowing liberal discovery in civil cases. This program will discuss how to protect crime victims’ identities and private information from public disclosure, limit the defense’s unbridled access to information, and avoid individual defendant’s use of a pending civil proceeding to obtain discovery for use in a pending criminal case.

Description: Crime victims' personal records are routinely subpoenaed by defendants in criminal cases; and those records are routinely turned over by third party record holders as well as the victims themselves without much protest. The reasons may include a lack of knowledge of privacy and other rights held by the victims, misperceptions of defendants' rights, lack of knowledge regarding how to respond to such subpoenas, and more. This program will discuss the common grounds raised in support of defendants' pretrial "discovery" of victim records, review a checklist of legal arguments that may be asserted to oppose those grounds, and provide some practical tips on how to deal with unknown subpoenas to third party holders of the records.

Presenter: Rebecca Khalil, J.D., Staff Attorney, NCVLI.  Ms. Khalil's Bio is available here.

Description: This program is part two of a three-part introductory training designed for attorneys interested in representing crime victims in criminal cases. The program will focus on the important issue of victims' standing to seek enforcement of their rights in the criminal courts. The law provides standing for victims to litigate at least some of their rights in the criminal courts in every state, and the law provides for victims to litigate all of their rights in the criminal courts in some states; but many still think "We can't litigate that issue." This program will discuss victim standing at the trial level and how to litigate this issue when others say you can’t do it.
