Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

Begged her to stop.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am sorry to hear this;

the court does have authority to issue a protective order that precludes a wrongdoer from engaging in harassing conduct, including cyberbullying.

The victim may apply for a protective order in the state in which they lived, based on the long arm jurisdiction statute, which gives that state personal jurisdiction over the offender based on the conduct that occurred in the state (ie the internet connection) and the fear resulting from the interaction.

The victim may also apply for a protective order where the wrongdoer resides.

Under the Full faith and credit clause, once there is a court order issued in one state, it can be "registered" or "domesticated" in any US state's court and that court will have legal authority to enforce it.

It is also possible to request legal fees as well.

She has opened over 10 linkedn, facebook, twitter, tumbler accounts with different names to try to hide her identity. Would the protective order include her IP addresses?

During the discovery process one could obtain the IP addresses through the internet service provider or the social media accounts.

The discovery process compels a third party to provide relevant information regarding the underlying facts of the case.

What could be the penalties for her breaking the order?

Generally it is a misdemeanor and so the court may order jail time along with fees incurred in enforcing any orders.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
