      Local leaders pushing for domestic violence court

      T oledo leaders came together Tuesday afternoon to push for stronger protections in domestic violence cases.

      C ity Council members Lindsay Webb, Shaun Enright, and municipal court judge Michelle Wagner held a press conference Tuesday afternoon at One Government Center to ask that a dedicated domestic violence court docket be established at Toledo Municipal Court.

      " W e can take steps now to make sure we are able to seek grant dollars next year, and other sources of funding for this type of comprehensive work , " explains Webb.

      T he leaders say recent examples of domestic violence such as the shooting death of Kaitlin Gerber at the hands of her ex-boyfriend and pressure from domestic violence groups pushed them to ask for the docket.
