PFA Tossed After Court Hearing

In February 2015, a woman sought and received a temporary PFA against her estranged husband which resulted in him being excluded from the marital residence. Her allegations included that her husband had made veiled threats, had angry outbursts that resulted in property damage, and employed a dog to “terrorize” her.

Pennsylvania criminal defense lawyer Tim George represented the defendant at the final PFA hearing. During the hearing, Mr. George cross-examined the accuser for more than an hour. In the cross-examination, the accuser was confronted with photographs, divorce and custody documents, and a replica of the small dog said to terrorize her. After the cross-examination, the defense moved to have the PFA dismissed due to lack of evidence. The Court agreed and dismissed the wife’s request for a final PFA and removed the temporary PFA.
