Fourth District Reverses Repeat Violence Injunction

The Fourth District Court released an opinion today in Tiger v. Marcus reversing the lower court's granting of an injunction against repeat violence on the grounds that only a single act of violence was shown. The Court specifically found that despite a second instance of a threat of violence, in the absence of an overt act leading the petitioner to feel a reasonable imminent fear of violence on that occasion, repeat violence had not been shown.
