City “Nuisance” Laws Punish Domestic Violence Survivors

In cities across the country, including in Arizona, local municipalities have passed what are known as “nuisance” laws intended to crack down on crime. The idea is to relieve the pressure on police forces that get called over and over to the same residences, often for incidents of domestic violence. But in many cases, the effect of these nuisance laws is that those experiencing domestic violence have to choose between enduring abuse, or reporting it and risking losing their homes.
