Restraining orders can be straitjackets on justice

Restraining orders can be straitjackets on justice

A large body of evidence shows that restraining orders are frequently misused. For example,the Family Law News, the official publication of the California Bar Association's family law sec tion, recently said:

"Protective orders are increasingly being used in family law cases to help one side jockey for an advantage in child custody ... (they are) almost routinely issued by the court in family law proceedings even when there is relatively meager evidence and usually without notice to the restrained person. ... it is troubling that they appear to be sought more and more frequently for retaliation and litigation purposes."
