Interpersonal Protective Order

Court: 
Court of Appeals
Case Number: 
2021-CA-0629-ME
Case Status: 
Unpublished Case
Rendered Date: 
Friday, January 28, 2022
Despite any good intentions in entering the IPO to offer protection after the alleged one-time violent incident as described by the Petitioner, the family court failed to conduct a statutorily required evidentiary hearing before issuing the (non-temporary) IPO. Furthermore, the isolated violent incident alleged in the petition, by itself, did not constitute stalking as defined in Kentucky law. Thus, the IPO entered could not stand. Vacated.
