Customer: Washington State.
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: No, we just realized the problem.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Hello. I'll be happy to assist you.

Do you know if it's a restraining order or a domestic violence protective order?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Restraining order. The 2 members in this situation are involved with another non-profit and are being harassed by the individual in question.
Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 11 months ago.

OK. The people against whom the order was issued have an obligation to stay away from where the other people may be. If they don't, they are in violation of the order and could be arrested or held in contempt of court.
