Nadeau v. Frydrych

Justia Opinion Summary  Robert Nadeau filed a complaint for protection from harassment against Lynnann Frydrych, alleging that Frydrych had engaged in acts of harassment against him since the end of their personal relationship. Frydrych moved to dismiss for failure to state a claim and sought attorney fees on the basis that the complaint was frivolous and contained unwarranted personal attacks on her. The district court dismissed the complaint, concluding that Nadeau had not sufficiently alleged harassment, and awarded Frydrych attorney fees and costs. The Supreme Court vacated the judgment, holding that the allegations in the complaint were sufficient to overcome a motion to dismiss, and because the complaint was not frivolous, the court abused its discretion by awarding Frydrych attorney fees and costs.
