My friend I previously asked about
will soon be in court for her divorce trial.
Her soon to be ex, has continued to not pay for anything, yet has recently purchased new cars. He's violated her protective order (harassing emails etc) and too many other things to go into.
She does have a new lawyer, and an ex-lawyer friend who has been in further contact with the army.
I'll be sitting in court for the trial next week. I am not on either side's witness list. I do not intend to say anything whatsoever to dungbeetle and his slimy horde.
My questions are:
- can I be called on the stand by him?
- If he or anyone from his side approaches me outside the courtroom, and invades my personal space, what would be an effective reaction? One
plan was to scream "Don't touch me" and backing away. I'm fine with making a scene, but don't want to come across as a nutjob.
- He is certainly capable of approaching me and faking an injury, acussing me of attacking him. Where is the safest place to keep my hands so that I can't be seen as the agressor; in my pockets, behind my back, or?
- If he shows up in uniform, should her lawyer object due to unfair bias to the jury, and probably violation of Army Uniform Regulations - AR 670-1
- any other advice?
