What is an injunction against harassment?
A district court can issue an injunction against harassment (and initially, a temporary restraining order) if there has been harassment against you by anyone who you do not have a family or household member relationship with.1 Therefore, if you were not granted an order of protection because the person harassing/abusing you is not a “family or household member,” you may be able to seek protection through an injunction against harassment. A typical example of a person who falls under an injunction against harassment is a neighbor, co-worker or schoolmate.
