A restraining order is a Civil Procedure. If it is then broken by the person that it was placed on a civil or criminal action could be taken. A civil suit is a suit in court for a claim against the defendant. It is more involved then a Civil Procedure. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
If you have had no courts actions taken against you then the answer is no.
The quesiton appears that they are asking about you and if you have had any court actions or civil actions regarding public records placed against you or brought against you. If you were not the party at the occused end of the restraining order or the DA's witness then your answer is no. You have not been involved in a civil suit. Again, I read the question as being only public records suits. All civil court actions are public record..............and this is why I am reading the question to pertain specific to public record civil actions brought against you.
