Judge dismisses Ontario City Councilor Rodriguez’s restraining order against ex-girlfriend

Ontario City Councilor Freddy Rodriguez attends a recent open forum by Community in Action and the city of Ontario. He lost his bid Friday to have a judge continue a restraining order he obtained against a former girlfriend. (The Enterprise/Kezia Setyawan).

VALE - Malheur Circuit Judge Lung Hung Friday afternoon dismissed a restraining order Ontario City Councilor Freddy Rodriguez obtained after claiming he felt threatened by an ex-girlfriend.

Hung acted after the woman challenged the order and a hearing on the matter was held on Monday, Aug. 3, and finished up Friday. The Enterprise does not identify the victims of domestic abuse.

The decision was another setback for Rodriguez. He is under a court order to say away from the ex-girlfriend for a year and in recent weeks he has had repeated contacts with police . . .
