Point One: The Cabin Boy has placed himself in an indelicate position. He went and got a peace order issued against himself because he was harassing me. The fact that he did so is now a settled legal matter that is not subject to relitigation. Thus, under the dreaded principle of … wait for it … res judicata, the fact of his harassment does not have to be proven again in any civil matter between us. If I were to sue him, the fact of his tortuous behavior would be a given. The only point at issue would be the extent of the damages I have suffered.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a bunch of legal matters to attend to this afternoon. Blogging may be slow for a while.
