Our regular review of important court decisions includes a ruling from Washington (State v. Heutink, 458 P.3d 796, Wash. Ct. App. 2020), in which a conviction was upheld for stalking, violation of protection order, over claims of constitutional, evidentiary errors; in California (Nicole G. v. Braithwaite, 49 Cal. App. 5th 990, Cal. Ct. App. 2020), in which a court properly excluded abuser from co-owned property, even where protected party had already moved out for her own safety, and ownership was disputed; in Indiana (S.H. v. D.W., 139 N.E.3d 214, Ind. 2020), a two year extension of original protection order reversed and vacated where there was no present evidence to support risk of further harm; in Ohio (J.M. v. L.J., 2020 WL 5509071, Ohio Ct. App. 2020), modification of protection order reversed where reduction from five years to two years was not supported by the record.
