Morris County NJ Restraining Order Dismissed

Morris County NJ Restraining Order

Morris County NJ Restraining Order

Facing a Morris County NJ Restraining Order? Travis J. Tormey recently represented a client who was facing a final restraining order (FRO) at the Morris County Superior Court in Morristown, New Jersey. Our client was a volunteer fireman in Morris County with no prior criminal record who had recently broken up with his girlfriend of several months. Unfortunately for him, she broke up with him over text message and he was unable to get any closure with a “face to face” conversation. Then, he happened to run into her at a local pub in Morris Plains and followed her home in an attempt to speak to her about their relationship. This was only two (2) days after she had broken up with him over the phone. His ex-girlfriend then filed a restraining order against him claiming that he was stalking her and she was in fear for her safety.

After a final restraining order (FRO) hearing before a Superior Court Judge in Morris County, the judge dismissed the restraining order. He did not find stalking for multiple reasons. First, stalking requires a “course of conduct” meaning multiple events of following, tracking, etc. In addition, the court found that our client’s intentions were to speak to her about their relationship, not to alarm her in any way. However, the plaintiff made it clear that she did not want to have any further contact with our client and any future contact could be deemed harassment or stalking and grounds for a new restraining order.

This was a great result for our client and the law firm. The temporary restraining order (TRO) was dismissed and our client avoided a permanent restraining order hanging over his head for the rest of his life.
