"Restraining Order Bans Seemingly Disturbed Man from Going to the Town in Which His Sister Lives"

Eugene Volokh has this post at The Volokh Conspiracy. In part:

That was the order in today’s N.G. v. J.P. (N.J. Super. Ct. App. Div. June 18, 2012); the appellate court upheld it, though it sent the case back down to trial court to carve out exceptions for “church attendance and doctor’s visits.” The defendant seemed to be rather disturbed, and to have done disturbing things; and he has shown an unwillingness to comply with earlier, narrower orders. Still, it seems to me that this sort of injunction is going rather further than restraining orders ought to go.
