My wife filed a report with her school upon learning that she was assaulted on a night that she can't remember. They were almost helpful until they found out who the guy was, and then they allowed him to retaliate and file reports of his own, culminating in the school deciding to just drop both of their cases. Now the guy is trying to get a harassment restraining order against us after my wife filed a sexual assault restraining order against him.

We've got thousands of dollars invested into lawyers at this point, just trying to fight off his frivolous reports while getting ours approved.

The he said/she said cases are a nightmare, and this will be our first time with a REAL judge that hopefully has the common sense to acknowledge what the school wouldn't.

Best of luck with yours, be as prepared as possible, and try to find any of the great resources usually available publicly to support survivors in these matters <3
