In this case, life almost imitates art, as we explore a recent decision with this introductory statement by the court:

“This case is unique as it details a type of domestic violence which generally goes unnoticed in our judicial system and goes beyond the usual parameters of physical, emotional, or economic abuse occurring during the period of time that the parties reside together. This form of domestic violence is by proxy and it uses the very judicial system which is supposed to protect individuals from domestic violence, to continue the perpetrators’ need for control well after the parties’ separation and commencement of the divorce action. This case demonstrates the repercussions and consequences that await an individual who engages in this very insidious form of domestic violence committed through vexatious/abusive litigation.”
