Abstract:     
NEW YORK LAW OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, 3rd ed., is a comprehensive 2-volume, 7-chapter, hardbound treatise published by West (Thomson-Reuters). The treatise is the seminal authority on domestic violence in New York State covering New York State laws and relevant U.S. Supreme Court cases. The authors of the book are Professor Breger (Albany Law School, Albany, NY), Professor Kennedy (Touro School of Law, Central Islip, NY), Jill M. Zuccardy, Esq. (New York City), and now retired Judge Lee Hand Elkins (formerly Brooklyn Family Court). The treatise and its authors have been cited as authority repeatedly by trial and appellate courts, as well as in scholarly articles. It is updated yearly with new cases, laws and legislation. The newly revised and expanded Third Edition includes material pertaining to: the legislative history and evolution of domestic violence laws; criminal law prosecutions and remedies; civil order of protection law; comparison of criminal and family court remedies; enforcement of orders of protection; custody, visitation and child welfare proceedings involving domestic violence; matrimonial and related actions; torts, immigration, employment, housing, probate and civil protections for domestic violence victims.
