Injunctions Against Harassment

An Injunction Against Harassment prohibits a person from harassing, annoying or alarming another person. Harassment would be a series of acts (more than one act) that are continuous or sporadic throughout a period of one year.

Harassment is a series of acts:

  • Can be spread over a long or short period of time
  • Much show a continuity of purpose
  • Must be directed at a specific person
  • Must seriously alarm, annoy, or harass the victim without serving a legitimate purpose
  • Must be such as would cause a reasonable person to suffer substantial emotional distress
  • Must actually cause the victim to suffer substantial stress
