Judge Dismisses Order for Protection after Trial (2017)

The Petitioner, a police officer, filed an order for protection on behalf of a family member against our client. The affidavit alleged false sexual abuse by our client against the Petitioner’s sister. Mr. Garry filed a motion and memorandum to dismiss the Petition because it was deficient on its face, and the allegations alleged in the affidavit did not meet the definition of abuse as defined by Minn. Stat. 518B.01. The Judge agreed with Mr. Garry at the close of Petitioner’s case, and dismissed the OFP in its entirety.
