Abstract

This article describes a case which has limited value as a precedent, but which has potential for instructing lawyers and judges about battered women and how the objective test for duress can be redefined for such women. In particular, it shows how expert testimony within the court can fulfill an education function.

Keywords: battered women, duress, court
