Kater v. Kater

Facts:

Plaintiff wife appealed the judgment of the Court of Special Appeals (Maryland) which vacated a protective order, holding that the wife’s fear of defendant husband had to be reasonable and remanding the case to the trial court to address whether the protective order was appropriate.  The appellate court vacated the order, finding no evidence that the trial court applied an individualized objective standard in finding that domestic assault occurred.
