Here is an example of a Somerset County NJ restraining order dismissed by judge thanks to the Tormey Law Firm LLC. Travis J. Tormey recently represented a client facing a permanent restraining order in Somerset County Superior Court in Somerville NJ. The client was also facing criminal charges for simple assault based on the allegations made by his ex-wife. If the final restraining order was issued, the client was facing a permanent restraining order along with fingerprinting, restricted travel, and being placed in a database for domestic violence offenders. He would also be prohibited from owning or possessing firearms.
The alleged predicate act surrounded the pick up and drop off of the parties children. This is not unusual in restraining order cases. The alleged victim testified that the defendant assaulted her during an argument at the pick up and drop off point. She had no other proof besides her testimony including no witnesses and no pictures of an alleged injuries. Then, the defendant testified that he did not assault her in any way and, in fact, the only contact made was the alleged victim shoving him during the argument. In addition, the defendant’s girlfriend also took the stand and corroborated his version of events.
Based on this testimony, the judge dismissed the restraining order and found that no predicate act of domestic violence had occurred. This was the appropriate result and the client was extremely satisfied with the services of Mr. Tormey and his law firm.
