Miami Law Human Rights Clinic, Casa de Esperanza, End Violence Against Women International, Futures Without Violence, Women in Federal Law Enforcement, Inc.
In Toradze v. Georgia, a law enforcement officer used his position of power to perpetuate a domestic violence situation in the country of Georgia. The Amicus Brief urged the European Court to consider, in the context provided by the case of Toradze v. Georgia, important principles that have been developed by international, regional, and national authorities on policing and human rights, and to apply a heightened responsibility standard in cases of officer-perpetrated gender based violence.
