In an unprecedented case, Aaron Brooks, the plaintiff, was a victim of domestic violence. His natural father had opened fire on a number of people, killing three of them and wounding five others. The plaintiff's mother and his sister were among the dead, while the plaintiff, who was fourteen years old at the time, was wounded. The plaintiff's father was then charged with, and convicted of, various offences, one of which was murder, and was subsequently sentenced to 20 years' imprisonment.
