Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.
It is certainly possible that you can sue for abuse of process, malicious prosecution, unlawful detainer, false imprisonment and possibly other claims as well.
Thus, if you can prove what you're saying here - - especially that you were never served with the protective order - - then you should have grounds to pursue this. If possible, you should consider consulting a local attorney or even a legal aid office for assistance in drafting and filing your pleadings to make sure that you're doing everything you can to put the best case forward.
