ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has won another protective order against a 19-year-old Pennsylvania man accused of stalking the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate and her family.
A magistrate in Anchorage issued the temporary protective order against Shawn Christy of McAdoo, Pa., and set a May court date for Palin and other plaintiffs, who also are seeking a six-month protective order.
Palin testified by phone that Christy has become more brazen in his threats.
Plaintiffs, including Palin's father Chuck Heath, also want protective orders against Christy's parents, Craig and Mary Karen Christy.
The original restraining order was issued last year, after Palin and her attorney said Shawn Christy threatened her and her family.
