Yet Another AVO Dismissed and Costs Awarded in Favour of Our Client

RELATED TO: Apprehended Violence Orders (AVOs)
CRIMINAL CASE

The Presiding Magistrate in Hornsby Local Court has dismissed the AVO brought against our client by his neighbour, and then ordered him to pay our client’s legal costs.

Our client and the applicant are next door neighbours in the northern suburbs of Sydney. They have been engaged in various disputes for over 4 years.

The applicant alleged that our client had “harassed and intimidated” him and his partner “at least 15 times” over a one-month period by “prying” on them, “making videos” and “using abusive language” both in-person and in text messages.

Our defence team prepared transcripts of all text messages, obtained relevant videos and arranged transcripts of those videos, gathered photographs and prepared witness statements – all of which undermined the applicant’s version of events.

The case ultimately reached a defended hearing wherein it became abundantly clear during the applicant’s lengthy cross-examination that he was primarily responsible for escalating the disputes, not our client.

The Presiding Magistrate was scathing in her criticism of the applicant as she dismissed his case and ordered him to pay our client’s legal costs in full.
