seeks criminal procesution of the Plaintiff? What are the conditions for a restraining order to be met? If someone is conducting themselves with absoulte malice or anger does that pass the threshold? In other words I am 99% positive that the Defendant readily knows no crime exists, does not mention a specific crime, has no proof of any crime but places this in public records to scare, intimidate and threaten the other side. Should I get the restraining order where I live or they live?
For it to be a terroristic threat the person must have threatened some sort of crime. From what you describe, if all that was done was make allegations in legal pleadings, I cannot see how you would be able to receive a restraining order.
More information is needed to answer your question, it is a bit confusing. Terroristic Threats is a felony that requires threats to physically harm or kill the victim. Lies and filings do not arise to this although may they constitute "false information" or "false statements" or "malicious prosecution". You cannot get a restraining order unless you have a relationship with the actor and they committed a listed offense. If they didn't break the law or they are just a friend or colleague it is not a domestic violence and a restraining order has to come on an Order to Show Cause. That is very difficult. Call for a free consultation.
If i understand your question, the answer is "no". There may be a claim for defamation but it does not seem that a crime has been committed.
