A.F.  vs.  D.F.

April 18, 2018.

Abuse Prevention.  Harassment Prevention.  Supreme Judicial Court, Superintendence of inferior courts.

The petitioner appeals from a judgment of a single justice of this court denying his petition pursuant to G. L. c. 211, § 3.  We affirm.

The respondent sought an abuse prevention order against the petitioner pursuant to G. L. c. 209A.  After a hearing on the extension of the temporary ex parte order, a judge in the District Court declined to extend the G. L. c. 209A order and instead issued a one-year harassment prevention order pursuant to G. L. c. 258E.  The judge subsequently denied the petitioner’s motion to reconsider, and the petitioner then filed his G. L. c. 211, § 3, petition in the county court.  The single justice denied the petition without a hearing. read more
