Massachusetts Appeals Court Vacates Harassment Prevention Order For Client Represented By Attorney McCarthy
The client and complaining witness worked together at a company. The witness applied for and received a Harassment Prevention (M.G.L. 258E) which interfered with his ability to perform his duties without stress resulting from the threat of being charged with the crime of violating the restraining order. Our office appeared in the District Court and vehemently argued that the allegations of the plaintiff did NOT meet the threshold for having the order extended. The judge improperly extended the order.
Our office appealed the findings of the judge to the Massachusetts Appeals Court and vehemently argued that there was NO basis for the order being issued. The Appeals Court agreed and ordered that the order be vacated.
