Ex boyfriend filed DV-109 (Santa Clara County, Calif.). Judge

Customer Question

Ex boyfriend filed DV-109 (Santa Clara County, Calif.).
Judge DENIED request for temporary restraining order due to no proof of past or present abuse.
Sheriff's Dept. didn't give me a DV-120 which I read online that when served I'm supposed to receive so I can respond.
Is this because technically he is NOT a protected person...yet?
Is it still appropriate for me to file a DV-120 to help my case?
He didn't tell the truth in his claims and I can prove it.
What I did wrong is my heart got broke and I did become a pest...never a stalker!!! Just writing to him too much but always good things.
Thought the man I dated still existed somewhere, trying to reach him, but I was wrong.
Question is do I need to file a DV-120 when he was denied the Temp. order?
Is it in my best interest to file a DV-120 in the long run of things. Court date is the 24th.
Thank you.
