DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Protective orders in real property disputes. Requires the division of state court administration to prescribe or approve a nonconfidential form to be used by a petitioner: (1) to describe the allegations on which a request for a protective order is based; and (2) if a petitioner is requesting that the court order the respondent to refrain from entering or damaging real property, to indicate whether the petitioner knows or believes that the petitioner and the respondent are disputing who owns, or has a lease or easement to use, the real property. Requires the clerk of the court to separate the nonconfidential form from the remainder of the petition and serve a copy of the form on the respondent. Allows a court discretion to limit the scope of a protective order if the court determines that the petition arises from a dispute involving ownership rights, leasehold rights, or easement rights concerning real property.
