In May of 2017, Ms. Jerejian tried one of the first cases in Bergen County where the Complaint was brought under the relatively new Sexual Assault Survivor Protection Act (“SASPA”). SASPA authorizes the court to issue protective orders for victims of certain non-consensual sexual conduct. It is designed to provide similar protection to that afforded under the Domestic Violence Act, to certain victims of sexual assault. Ms. Jerejian’s client was accused of sexually assaulting a relative of his landlord. Ms. Jerejian was successful at trial as the judge ruled in her client’s favor, finding that the Plaintiff’s allegations were not substantiated and the Temporary Protective Order was dismissed.
