Scandal in Charlotte--772 Frivolous RO Petitions in 2012

Re Restraining Orders

Asheville, NC

#1 Jun 27, 2013
In fiscal 2012, according to the WRAL article cited below, 772
false and malicious NCGS 50C restraining order petitions were filed in Mecklenburg County. These free no-filing-fee petitions which invoke the police power and cause innocent defendants, usually men, to be dragged into criminal court are nothing short of a scandal!

Twenty-three states in the USA have enacted these easily abused laws which permit the plaintiff to claim (s)he is being harassed on the most ridiculous claims imaginable. In NC the plaintiff can make out a case for "stalking" (usually against a man) simply by filing a false affidavit claiming the defendant "yells at me and calls me names."

Want to read more? See the Hastings Law Journal article by Law Professor Aaron H. Caplan of Loyola University College of Law by simply googling his name in quotes and downloading his 83-page discussion of these destestable violations of basic Constitutional rights.
