I want to sue a person for defamation and get an RO on them as well. I don't want this person to know where I live because she has made threats of violence to me. So on the lawsuit can I wave my address?
You'll want to get a lawyer for a defamation lawsuit, but you can contact the police about a restraining order. Avvo has a great lawyer finder tool to locate an attorney close to your home. Good luck.
Yes. If you have an attorney your address is automatically not included. If it is a suit for a protection order, there is a procedure for getting the court's permission to leave your address out of it.
