UPDATE—IANAL, but this order seems a bit more serious than a Maryland peace order.

UPDATE 2—Patrick Grady received a voicemail message from the Cabin Boy™ this afternoon. Mr. Grady informs me that it and any further contact will be forwarded to his local police department. Because of possible questions about service of the court order, Schmalfeldt may get away with that contact. However, he has admitted to constructive service on his Twitter feed, so further contact probably won’t be ignored by the Illinois authorities. Additionally, I was present when Howard County officials assured Mr. Grady that they would enforce an Illinois court order. Since the Cabin Boy™ has acknowledged notice of Mr. Grady’s wish not to be contacted, further contact would probably violate Maryland’s harassment statute (Md. Crim. Law § 3-803).
