CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether the trial court’s anti-staring provision was proper?
A neighbor of petitioner obtained a harassment restraining order against him. Petitioner appealed. The Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld the harassment restraining order against petitioner on the grounds that petitioner had taken a substantial step towards inflicting bodily harm when he swerved his vehicle towards the neighbor and her mother, supporting the finding of harassment. Additionally, the Minnesota Court of Appeals held that the prohibition of staring more than 1 second was proper. Affirmed.
