Judge David Melcher is waiting for a family court docket without a domestic violence case.

Hes not holding his breath.

In fact, during the last five years, domestic violence cases have been on the rise.

During all of 2003, there were 40 new domestic violence cases filed in Harrison County.

Melcher said that number more than doubled by 2007 with 83 new cases being filed.

Its not just a Harrison County problem either, Melcher said. In neighboring Pendleton County, there were 33 cases in 2003, compared to 75 last year.
