Ind. Courts - State's first "Domestic Violence Problem Solving Court To Begin In July"

That according to this story from WBIW.com:

(BEDFORD) - Lawrence Superior Court I Judge Michael Robbins announces the Domestic Violence Problem Solving Court will begin in July.

Robbins, accompanied by Nedra Brock Fleetwood and Joe Dibert of the Lawrence County Probation Department, sought and received authorization from the Lawrence County Council to implement the project geared to address the issue of domestic violence.

The court was established after county officials raised concerns about the issue to state health officials. A study of cases from 2007-2009 led to the recommendation of a domestic violence court.

Then, in 2013, the county received a $40,000 grant from the Indiana Supreme Court to form Indiana's first certified Domestic Violence Problem Solving Court.
