Homeless woman's domestic-violence case outrages advocates
Orange circuit judge denied permanent injunction because she didn't live in a "dwelling unit"


Judith Colanderi woke to find her then-boyfriend's knee in her chest and his thumbs crushing her throat. A large gash in the back of her head bled profusely where she'd been bludgeoned with a brick.

Colanderi, whose head was repaired with six staples, was granted a temporary domestic-violence injunction against her on-again-off-again boyfriend Christopher Romans.

But when she went to court to get a permanent injunction, it was denied even though Romans had been arrested and charged with attempted murder as a result of the attack.

"The judge asked me where we lived, and I said we were homeless," Colanderi, 33,said. "He didn't even open the file."
