Domestic Violence Court: Results of Victim Survey
Group: Fourth Judicial District Research Division
The Research Division of the Fourth Judicial District recently surveyed victims of cases heard on the domestic violence court calendar in downtown Minneapolis. Overall findings suggest that victims’ impressions of the court were favorable. Over 70% of survey respondents were satisfied with the outcomes of their cases, and 68% felt that the judges cared about their situations. Victims’ levels of satisfaction with how they were treated by the judges were at least as favorable as their levels of satisfaction with their own advocates. In addition, victims’ positive perceptions of the court were seemingly unrelated to the outcomes of the cases in which they were involved. This finding corroborates national research on courts in general which suggests that individuals’ levels of satisfaction with the court have less to do with the outcomes of their cases, and more to do with whether or not they feel they have been treated fairly.
