Ok, thank you for that information.
I do not believe that your landlord will qualify for any type of restraining or no contact order for the reasons that follow.
First, as I am sure you are aware, California has multiple types of restraining orders. One applies for individuals who are/were in a romantic or familial relationship. Another applies for individuals who are over the age of 65 and against those who take care or supervise them. Another one is a Workplace Restraining Order, which only applies to individuals who work together. The last one, which is the one that would apply to you, is a Civil Harassment Restraining Order (CHO). Because, under the law and the facts you have provided, the only type of restraining order that would apply in your case is a CHO, this is the type of restraining order I will discuss.
A CHO can be asked for, and granted, if the person requesting it is being harassed, stalked, abused, or threatened by someone. Since you have not provided any facts from your situation that shows that you threatened, physically abused or stalked the landlord, I can only assume that he would be alleging you "harassed" him when you made these statements. So to get the CHO, he would have to show the judge that he was subject to harassment from you. CHO is addressed in California Code of Civil Procedure Section 526. Here is a link to the law: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=ccp&group=00001-01000&file=525-534
"Harassment" is defined by California Code of Civil Procedure Section 527.6(3). According to 527.6(b)(1), there must be a course of conduct of harassment. "Course of Conduct " is defined as a pattern of conduct composed of a series of acts over a period of time, however short, evidencing a continuity of purpose, including following or stalking an individual,making harassing telephone calls to an individual, or sending harassing correspondence to an individual by any means, including,but not limited to, the use of public or private mails, interoffice mail, facsimile, or computer email.
Essentially, what the law requires when someone is requesting a CHO is that the landlord must show that there have been at least more than one circumstance wherein you "harassed" him. This is an ABSOLUTE requirement and cannot be waived.
From what you have provided me, it appears that there is NO COURSE OF CONDUCT of harassment on your part. It looks like you engaged in one argument, on one day, with the landlord and that is it. Because there is no course of conduct, a CHO would not be granted to the landlord.
Further, as you can see, "harassment" requires that the actions you engaged in "served no legitimate purpose." If a legitimate purpose was present, this would be another reason your landlord would not be able to obtain a CHO. As a landlord, he is under a duty to address any issues that may arise regarding the property he oversees and the tenants who reside on or in the property. What it appears you were doing was informing him of issues with the property (albeit, yelling at him about the issues). Because of this, your complaints and actions DID serve a legitimate purpose.
Thus, because 1) there is/was no course of conduct and 2) your actions served a legitimate purpose, I do not think the landlord will be able to obtain a restraining order against you.
