Ines Maria Nigro has got a restraining order against Jason Newsted.
A restraining order is a legal order issued by a state court which requires one person to stop harming another person. It is also sometimes called a Protection Order, Order of Protection, Protection from Abuse Order, Police Protection, Protective Order, Non molestation order or some other similar name.
Restraining order/protection order laws establish who can file for an order, what protection or relief a person can get from such an order, and how the order will be enforced. While there are differences from state to state, all protective order statutes permit the court to order the abuser to stay away from someone, their home, their workplace or their school ("stay away" provisions) and to stop contacting them. Victims generally also can ask the court to order that all contact, whether by telephone, notes, mail, fax, email or delivery of flowers or gifts, is prohibited ("no contact" provisions). Courts can also order the abuser to stop hurting or threatening someone ("cease abuse" provisions).
