Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence: A Primer for Judges (2013) [pdf]

This article by Dorchen Leidholdt discussed the intersection of human trafficking with domestic violence relationships. It discusses how “understanding the domestic violence/trafficking connection is not only useful to judges and court personnel in identifying victims and understanding the nature and effects of their ordeal. It can also be valuable in understanding the kind of assistance victims need and where help is available. Courts increasingly are taking steps to ensure that victims obtain assistance and are referring them to service.”
