N.G. VS. J.P. A-3247-10T3

N.G. VS. J.P. A-3247-10T3


In this appeal from the issuance of a final restraining order (FRO) under the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act, we affirmed the exercise of jurisdiction even though the parties, who are adult siblings, have not resided together since 1960,when they both were children. We agreed with the judge's determination that the harassment of plaintiff by defendant over the intervening decades -- although sporadic – conferred jurisdiction on the Family Part to issue the FRO, in light of the fact that the present incidents arose directly from the parties' acrimonious family relationship and their status as former household members. 06-18-12
