Court defines "dating relationship" in Florida domestic violence case

Posted by Nydia Streets of Streets Law in Florida Domestic Violence

After their relationship soured, the parties in the case Sumners v. Thompson, 1D18-3637 (Fla. 1st DCA May 13, 2019) went their separate ways but not before the alleged victim filed a petition for injunction against dating violence against the alleged abuser. The petitioner alleged she was repeatedly text messaged, called and sent messages on social media by her ex-paramour, in addition to him showing up at her house uninvited.
