DOMESTIC VIOLENCE COURT
The Summit County Court of Common Pleas, Domestic Violence Court, has received Certification from the Supreme Court of the State of Ohio. This is the first Court of its kind in the State of Ohio.
Presided over by Judge Paul J. Gallagher, the Court provides services for domestic violence offenders and their victims through a combination of Intensive Supervision and victim support.
As a result, all felony cases, except murder cases, involving crimes between intimate partners are now assigned to Judge Gallagher's Domestic Violence Court instead of being distributed among the ten General Division Judges.
