The presenters discussed the new law allowing abuse victims to apply for temporary orders of protection electronically and appear in court via video conference from a remote location. This law will allow elderly abuse victims to stay at a secure location without traveling to court. The Panel also discussed other technology designed to provide court services and resources to seniors. Judge Kaplan also chairs the New York State Judicial Committee on Elder Justice, of which Professor Goldweber is a member.
