it went to trial?
that strongly suggests the state believed the claim and they felt there was enough evidence to take it to trial
a case being dismissed during trial is unusual. Was she actually found not guilty instead?
and from what you’ve said, a restraining order isn’t likely if the father wishes to have those people around. You might be able to get a court to limit the type of speech your child is subjected to but as I said before; very diffficult to enforce.
Your statement about the court chastising the person who made the initial statements about the rape;
i cant imagine when or why a court would ever do this. A person makes a report of a suspected crime. Anything after that is up to the state to continue. The reporter has no say so in the matter. It would also be unusual for the person to be in the courtroom other than when called to testify (which means she. Probably wouldn’t be in the court when the motion to dismiss was made) . Courts prefer various witnesses not be allowed to observe other witnesses testimony
but even if she was, the court speaking directly to her would be so unusual it’s difficult to believe. The judge knows all the person is was a reporter. If the court wanted to chastise anybody, typically it would be the prosecutor
you might also want to refrain from using the term hag. It won’t serve you well.
