Arizona Court of Appeals – Ruling Re: Order of Protection

The Arizona Court of Appeals, Division One hears case regarding ex parte order of protection and “complete unrelentless harassment” through text and e-mail messages despite procedural issues, i.e., timeliness, mootness. “Hundreds” of messages were found to have been made, and although, the messages did not specifically state that the respondent was going to “kill him”, respondent made threatening statements such as “I know where you live, I know where [petitioner’s girlfriend] works, I’m going to have the last laugh”, etc. See Cardoso v Soldo.
