Law Library Book of the Month
Elder Abuse Litigation
By Russell Balisok
Elder Abuse Litigation is a Rutter Group litigation manual focusing on remedies for neglect, physical mistreatment, and financial abuse under the California Elder Abuse and Civil Protection Act, including its punitive damages scheme. The guide delves into the duties and liabilities of skilled nursing facilities, managed care, board and care homes, hospice care, physicians, and family members. Model forms include client intake checklists, fee agreements, complaints, requests for restraining orders, motions in limine, and discovery matters. Elder Abuse Litigation, available both in print and on WestlawNext, is part of the Law Library’s comprehensive collection of resources on elder law representation.
Look for it at the Law Library information desk!
