Summary:

The “Victim’s Protective Order” has long been one of the most abused legal tools in Oklahoma law. Because the original short-term, “emergency” protective order can be imposed by a mere allegation of a “victim” without the other party present to dispute that allegation, a citizen can have his reputation ruined and be kicked out of his home if someone is willing to lie to a judge.

These cases can be fought and won, but you need a lawyer who knows the rules and refuses to be intimidated.

Summary:

In this case, the defendant breached an agreement to sell real estate to Ms. Maio. Karyn sued under the doctrine of specific performance, a contract remedy that requests a judgment to compel the seller to perform her promise to sell the land identified in the contract for sale.

Haslam negotiated a settlement involving a five-figure payment to Ms. Maio. She pocketed the judgment money, got her deposit on the contract back, and walked away 5 figures richer.
