Is there anything I can do if someone attempted to file a false restraining order against me?

To add to Mr. Rosmarin's thoughts, even had she been granted a Civil Protection Order against you, it would not have prohibited you from having her served, by a sheriff's deputy or a private process server, with your Small Claims Court lawsuit.
This answer is provided as general information about a legal issue, is not legal advice specific to a particular case, and does not create a lawyer-client relationship with the person asking the question.
No, it's not illegal to pursue legal remedies, and if you are party to the lawsuit you need someone else to serve her anyway.
