When responding to a TRO, do I have to file my witnesses papers with the plaintiff and his attorney or just the judge?
When responding to a TRO and I have gotten witnesses to fill out statements, do I have to give copies to the person who filed the TRO against me and/or his lawyer? Or can I just file them with the court clerk for the judge to see? I fear what he may do against them if he doesn't like the truth they will tell about him. He is unstable and has isolated and harassed people in the neighborhood for years. He punched one gentleman in the face for accidentally hitting his car while backing up on the narrow road they share to make room for him to pass. I have just gotten weary of the way he is treating everyone in the neighborhood, when all we want is peace, and I "called him out" to settle it. I am embarrassed by what I said, now. Is there a "best" way I should respond in court at the hearing?
