Eric Bain helps client get harassment restraining order instead of conflicting order for protection
Date: September 2019
Case: Order for Protection
Attorney: Eric W.M. Bain
Result: Eric’s client was petitioning the court in Ramsey County to issue an Order for Protection (OFP) against his ex-girlfriend. However, moments before the evidentiary hearing was set to begin, Eric’s client was served with an Emergency OFP that she obtained against him. Eric worked out a resolution where both parties agreed to a Harassment Restraining Order. Eric’s client was pleased because he got the protection he desired, avoided the collateral consequences of having an OFP against him, and saved time and money by dealing with both cases at once.
