Case Conclusion Date:January 8, 2013

Practice Area:Criminal Defense

Outcome:Dismissed

Description:Order for Protection An ex-parte Order for Protection was issued against our client, the respondent. Client lives several states away and the petitioner, who resides in Hennepin County, expected the Client to simply ignore the ex-parte Order and allow it to become final. A final Order would greatly impact some of the Client’s constitutional rights, so he drove 19 hours for the hearing. At the hearing we successfully argued that there was insufficient evidence to support a finding of domestic abuse. The judge promptly dismissed the Petition for the Order for Protection and vacated the original ex-parte Order against our Client.
