Question: Can someone take out a harassment order when no harassment has occurred?

Answer: An Injunction Against Harassment is available if the conduct of any person is "harassment" as defined by Arizona law: The defendant can be anyone, whether or not related to you. The conduct can be any conduct which is harassment. Harassment is defined as a series of acts (at least two events) over any period of time that is directed at a specific person and that would cause a reasonable person to be seriously alarmed, annoyed or harassed and the conduct in fact seriously alarms, annoys, or harasses the person and serves no legitimate purpose (A.R.S. 12-1809(R)).
