“Because of the feedback he has received concerning this proposal, he does not plan to include it in the bill he later will introduce,” Erica Chabot, spokeswoman for the Senate Judiciary Committee, said this week.

Leahy, D-Vt., is the committee’s chairman.

    has anyone had the misfortune to have had a false pfa in pennsylvania.there is no guide lines that judges use to reach their decissions to permanently have someone removed from their own home and ruin that persons life.in most cases this is like instant divorce.and in many cases there are womens rights groups that walk these women through the entire process.where are mens rights in these cases.take heed men in pa. ps i would be the first person in line to stand and protect a woman from harm.
