I'm not really sure what defendant/appellant is thinking here. Or why he thinks it's worth (1) pursuing an appeal, and/or (2) hiring an attorney to do so.
It's not that appellant is the worst ex-boyfriend in the history of the universe. He's not. By far.
But he nonetheless can't let go, and when you keep trying to communicate with someone who's repeatedly asked you to leave them alone, and especially when you show up at her place unwanted, that's enough for a restraining order. Entirely appropriately, I might add. As the Court of Appeal (rightly) holds.
Move on, Randy. Let it go. Legally as well as otherwise.
