C. 258 Harassment Order Renewal DENIED
Client's neurotic neighbor sought, and obtained, a civil restraining order. Despite the fact that she admitted, and evidence proved, her photo surveillance of the client's property, and was constantly calling the police, who found no wrongdoing, she had the order issued, and then extended. She sought to have it extended again, whimpering and crying about his "guns" - which had been surrendered when the order first issued - and his truck being too loud, despite his changing the muffler to make it quieter.
Notwithstanding the complainant's counsel bringing up irrelevant issues, and giving a 5-minute closing when allotted only 3 minutes, my presentation of logic and fact prevailed. The order was NOT extended, and the client is thrilled.
