What can we do if a boy from school is getting a domestic violence restraining order on my daughter?

My daughter is 17 years old. She was called on the 20th to appear in the Barstow court for a domestic violence restraining order filed by a 17 year old boy who she knows from school. He filed this on the 18th of September towards her. What should we do first? This is bogus. She is not his girlfriend and doesn't want to be and he does this to her out of spite to intimidate her into submission to date him. It is crazy.

    First, you should contact the school and tell them what is going on. Take any evidence you have to ensure you are believed. If it is all bogus, they should be able to advise you and maybe put a stop to the boy's activities. Then you should contact the boy's parents and explain that he, and they since he is a minor, could be sued for improper use of [legal] process, defamation and other causes if he does not remove the restraining order and dismiss the court case. I would also demand a written, and an in court apology. Of course, if the boy and his parents refuse you must bring these legal actions.
