Travis J. Tormey recently helped a client get a restraining order dismissed in Morris County Superior Court in Morristown, NJ.
The client was facing a permanent restraining order after an alleged incident involving his ex-girlfriend. A superior court judge issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) and then scheduled a hearing for a final restraining order (FRO). Prior to the date of the FRO hearing, the client contacted the Tormey Law Firm for assistance.
The basis for the initial TRO was an allegation of stalking and harassment by our client. The plaintiff claimed that our client showed up at her place of work. Additionally, she alleged that our client posted false and misleading information about her on the Internet.
The plaintiff, who was also represented by counsel, appeared in court for the FRO hearing. At the hearing, Mr. Tormey showed that there was a lack of evidence of domestic violence and persuaded the plaintiff to agree to dismiss the TRO and enter into civil restraints. A civil restraint is basically a consent order that applies to both parties, with the parties agreeing to have no further contact with one another.
Needless to say, the client was thrilled with this result. Since the client is still a young man, a permanent restraining order would have severely impacted his future. A restraining order could have caused serious problems for his personal life and his career going forward. Thanks to the efforts of Travis J. Tormey and the Tormey Law Firm, the TRO was dismissed and the client was able to ensure that his future remains bright.
