temporary restraining order. A legal order issued by a judge on behalf of a person who has claimed to have been harassed or injured by another person. It forbids further harassment or injury by the offender named in the offended person's complaint. If a TRO is issued, the court also hears the alleged offender's statement in a second session. Based on this hearing the court can decide to make the TRO permanent, and may then issue an injunction against any further harassment or injury to the plaintiff. Failure to comply with a TRO or an injunction can result in arrest of the offender.
