“Dear PoPville,

I am trying to find information on obtaining (I think it’s called) a Civil Harassment Restraining Order in DC, but I can’t seem to find a direct answer anywhere online.

Everything seems to focus on abuse victims, but this is not a situation of domestic abuse or physical stalking. My situation involves cyber stalking, slander, harassment and minor threats from someone who is unstable and who lives in close proximity to me. Is this grounds for a restraining order? How do I go about getting one?”
