    Default Case Law Re:restraining Order Wa State

    My question involves restraining orders in the State of: WA.

    Just received response for petition for TRO.
    respondents lawyer cites cases where physical violence was used as a basis for the TRO.

    ( this case involves a threat to kill if divorced, 15 rifles/handguns removed, a history of drug abuse and admitting to current drug use by respondant)

    I'm in need to cases where ONLY the fear of physical violence was used to get the TRO. (VS actual harm)

    If possible, a fear based case, that ended in violence, to cite.

    Or information on how to search them myself please.

    Respondant got continuance after service Oct 15. Waited until NOV 14 to serve... One day prior to court.
    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Try Google Scholar.

    I started it for you. You'll have to read the decisions.

    Use the search parameter:

    restraining order based on fear

    Then start reading the decisions to see if a restraining order requires an act of violence or just the fear of an act of violence.
