Harassment in Minnesota is defined by statute and a specific process is in place to obtain a Harassment Restraining Order. Here are some key elements:

  • Harassment: Single incident of assault, or repeated, unwanted acts designed to invade the rights, safety and privacy of another and that have a substantial adverse effect on the intended recipient.
  • Process: Alleged victim submits papers to judge, outlining what happened. If court believes act of harassment occurred, Harassment Restraining Order is issued. Alleged aggressor may dispute issuance of Order, and request a hearing. If alleged victim proves case, Order up to two years may issue. If case not proven, Order is dismissed.
  • HRO Violation: Constitutes a crime.
