CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether the evidence was sufficient to support issuance of harassment restraining order?
Defendant appealed the issuance of a harassment restraining order against him on the grounds. He argued that the evidence was insufficient, and, that a 500 foot distance requirement and 2 year duration were not warranted. Noting that defendant approached plaintiff 3 times on a jet ski, circled plaintiff’s pontoon, sprayed plaintiff, yelled profanities, called plaintiff names, and threatened to beat plaintiff, the Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld the trial court’s order.
Suess v. Scott, A20-1334, Sherburne County.
Minnneapolis Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
