PFA - standing - sexual/intimate partner - victim of sexual assault

Scott v. Shay - Superior Court - June 26, 2007

Victim and perpetrator of sexual assault are not "family or household members" or "sexual or intimate partners."

In addition, there was no evidence of "abuse" in the case. Two encounters more than a year apart do not establish a course of conduct. Nor did plaintiff have a reasonable fear of bodily injury from defendant's actions.
