Travis J. Tormey recently represented a client and helped the client get a restraining order dismissed in Morris County Superior Court in Morristown, New Jersey.
The client was subject to a permanent restraining order after an alleged incident that involved his ex-girlfriend. A superior court judge initially issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) and then scheduled a hearing to determine whether a final restraining order (FRO) should be issued. Before the date of the FRO hearing, the client contacted the Tormey Law Firm and enlisted Mr. Tormey’s assistance.
The basis for the TRO was an allegation by the client’s ex-girlfriend, who claimed that he had stalked and harassed her. For example, the plaintiff alleged that our client went her place of work. She also alleged that our client put false information about her online.
The plaintiff was also represented by legal counsel when she appeared in court for the FRO hearing. At the hearing, Mr. Tormey successfully argued that there was a lack of evidence of domestic violence in the case. As a result, Mr. Tormey was able to persuade the plaintiff to agree to dismiss the TRO and enter into civil restraints with the client. A civil restraint is essentially a consent order that applies to both parties. It means that the parties agree to have no further contact with one another.
