MEMORANDUM DECISION

Samuel A. Thumma, Judge

¶1 Roseann Delfino appeals from an injunction against harassment entered against her at the request of appellee Sandra Hall. Finding no abuse of discretion, the injunction against harassment is affirmed.

FACTS[1] AND PROCEDURAL HISTORY

¶2 Delfino and Hall have been residential neighbors in Phoenix. Their interactions became strained over time, resulting in various police reports and altercations between Hall and individuals allied with her and Delfino and individuals allied with her. That animosity resulted in multiple injunctions against harassment.

¶3 On March 15, 2012, Hall obtained an injunction against harassment against Delfino in Fountain Hills Municipal Court, prohibiting Delfino, inter alia, from going to or near Hall's residence and from having any contact with Hall, other than through third parties. From the record, it is unclear whether this order was ever served.

¶4 On March 22, 2012, Delfino obtained an injunction against harassment against Hall in Maricopa County Superior Court, prohibiting Hall, inter alia, from going to or near Delfino's residence or from having any contact with Delfino, other than through third parties. Hall was served with that injunction on March 22, 2012. On April 2, 2012, Hall filed a request for a hearing. After an April 4, 2012 evidentiary hearing, where both Hall and Delfino appeared and presented evidence, the Superior Court ordered that the injunction against harassment against Hall remain in effect. No appeal was taken from that injunction.

After an April 25, 2012 evidentiary hearing, where both Hall and Delfino appeared and presented evidence, the Superior Court ordered that the injunction against harassment against Delfino remain in effect. Delfino timely appealed from that order, and this court has jurisdiction pursuant to Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) sections 12-120.21 and 12-2101(A)(5)(b) (2013).[3] See A.J. Lafaro v. Cahill, 203 Ariz. 482, 485, ¶ 8, 56 P.3d 56, 59 (App. 2002); Ariz. R. Prot. Ord. P. 9(A)(2).

DISCUSSION

¶6 Delfino challenges the injunction against harassment issued against her and in favor of Hall, alleging the court proceeding was "staged and fixed, " that a number of individuals "aided and abetted" Hall and that she ...
