N.T.B. VS. D.D.B.
In this appeal, we determine that a spouse's damage of a door within the couple's jointly-owned marital home may constitute the predicate act of "criminal mischief," N.J.S.A. 2C:17-3, through harm to the "property of another," thereby supporting a finding of an act of domestic violence pursuant to the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act (PDVA), N.J.S.A. 2C:25- 17 to -35.
