Boushie v. WindsorAnnotate this Case
This controversy arose from cyber-blog exchanges between Plaintiff and Defendant. Plaintiff requested and was granted a temporary order of protection (TOP) against Defendant. The district court affirmed the municipal court’s order granting the TOP, extended the TOP, and sanctioned Defendant as a vexatious litigant through imposing a pre-filing order. The Supreme Court affirmed but struck one condition of the district court’s order, holding that the district court (1) not abuse its discretion in affirming the TOP and remanding to the municipal court for further proceedings; (2) did not err by permanently enjoining Defendant from filing any new pleadings without prior district court approval; but (3) abused its discretion in requiring Defendant to post a $50,000 bond in the event Defendant filed an action or proceeding against a judge or court employee.
