New Jersey

A.T. v. R.T., 2012 N.J. Super. Unpub. LEXIS 189

Defendant appealed the final restraining order (FRO) entered against him under the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act. One of the many allegations in the plaintiff’s complaint was that the defendant used a GPS tracking device on her car to track and monitor her movements. Under N.J.S.A 2C:12-10(a)(1), a course of conduct necessary to constitute stalking includes “directly or indirectly . . . by any action, method, or device, or means, following, monitoring, observing. . . a person.” In this case, the GPS device that was placed in plaintiff’s car was clearly conduct that was directed at her. Considering the entire relationship history between the defendant and plaintiff, all of the allegations, including the GPS stalking, were adequate to grant an FRO.
