Harassment Restraining Order (HRO) Denied:

Client was served with an HRO by the guardians of her child’s friend who claimed that she had harassed her child’s friend. Attorney Knuesel set the matter on for a contested hearing. At trial, Attorney Knuesel objected to the claimant’s testimony about what they had heard from others. The Court properly found that such evidence was hearsay and therefore not admissible. The Court denied claimant’s request for the HRO.
