    Default Request of No Contact- Extent

    My question involves restraining orders in the State of: Missouri

    Persons in my network are claiming friends stay away given this friend ( waited in the street twice in a neighborhood / followed once) in effort to talk with a boyfriend. All referring to the friend as a "stalker". Is this legal?

    What do you mean by "my network?"

    Is what legal?

    You need to clarify just about everything in your question.

    Huh?

    Your post is pretty well incoherent, and I suggest you try again.

    Friend-1 waited in the street twice in a neighborhood / followed once in effort to talk with a boyfriend. Associated friends now calling this Friend -1 a stalker and say they will call police if the person shows at their house or neighborhood
    Is there basis for this call to the police? Is it slanderous or defamatory for the associated friends to call Friend-1 a stalker? Legally can anything be done? ( Note all people involved have been friends for 25 years; nothing like this has occurred previously)

    Associated friends can call the police all they want. They don't have to allow F-1 at their home.

    And depending on what is said by friend 1 and the frequency friend 1 “waits for” anybody and any ensuing actions, friend 1 may even be labeled a stalker by the police...

    or not.

    It’s difficult to give much of a definitive answer as the possibilities are so varied depending on the precise facts at hand. The few instances described aren’t likely to result in friend 1 being determined (and possibly prosecuted) a stalker. Of course if “boyfriend” is concerned about friend 1’s activities, he may consider a restraining order against friend 1. Such actions should not be taken lightly though. Having record of a restraining order on one’s court records can be a serious issue.

    It is not slander nor defamation for your "network" to call out your "Friend's" behavior for what it is.

    Save yourself the trouble and stop trying to talk with your presumably ex-boyfriend, or you'll find yourself on the wrong end of a restraining order.

    In response to this posting ----Yes it is these few instances. "What type of concern" would boyfriend have that could yield a RTO?

    A desire not to be bothered by an ex.

    By any chance is English not your first language? If it is, please use normal sentence structure.

    No way to know because you did not coherently describe the situation.

    Defamation is the making of a false statement of fact to at least one person other than the subject of the statement, which statement is harmful to the subject's reputation, and which, in most cases, results in actual, monetary damages to the subject. You do the math, but generally, one friend calling another friend a "stalker" is not actionable.
