A friend has a friend that had invited people over to her

a friend has a friend that had invited people over to her house. Everyone was drinking and horse playing in the house. no one thought things were too unusual especially for two of them. she afterward says my friend inappropriately touched her private parts and yanked on her clothes. I am afraid she may say this was not consensual and make sexual assault accusations. my friend also works a temp job with one of the girls' friends. and that person confronted him about it at their place of work. its likely a few other co workers heard accusations of grabbing butts and ripping clothes off. what should my friend do?

My son was sexually assaulted for 12 years. He reported the

My son was sexually assaulted for 12 years. He reported the crime to the states attorney. The case was then investigated by state police for 9 months. My son also wore a wire to help convict the TWO men who had done this. There was ample proof of these actions including an admission of one of the men in his affidavit. The states attorney said that because my son could not remember specific dates the defense would use it. The defence presented a false document which was not authentic. I proved this to states attorney. He told us he did not want to go to trial because he didn't think he could win, so the man was offered a plea barging of 6 months in jail and the other 8 years on probation. He is also allowed to travel out of state everyday with a monitoring braclet. The states attorney stated in court at the bargin, which he did not discuss with my son. He stated that he could connect my son to this man at ages 12 and 15 but would not take him to trial. After this he proceeded to take to trial 3 cases where women were sexually assaulted with hardly any evidence and got convictions. Would this constitute judicial misconduct?

About a week ago I got in to an online argument on Facebook

About a week ago I got in to an online argument on Facebook about politics with a person I didn't know on a mutual acquaintances page. A few days later (this previous weakened) he messaged me on my personal account giving me crap about my personal views. I responded and told him he was an asshole among a few other choice words. Fast forward to today and he contacts the company I work for over Facebook and sends them screenshots of the posts saying i shouldn't work there and he feels bad for whoever has to work with me because I am a horrible person. Company doesn't respond to him. I mention to the initial mutual friend that I should contact the company he works for and tell them about how vindictive he is. The mutual friend passes it along to him. He then again contacts my company over Facebook saying that he is a hard working citizen and how can they employ someone who would try and ruin a mans career and that he will be filing a restraining order against me. He lives in California. I live in Arizona. We have never met and he is blocked on Facebook. What kind of grounds could he have for a harassment restraining order based off an online argument in which he made the initial contact and then contacted my employer? Would California even approve a restraining order over this with myself being in AZ? He has no information on me besides my middle and last name and my employer. He doesn't know my first name. How could he even fill out the paperwork? I don't want to have to worry about being served and driving to California to fight this.
