Los Angeles, Feb 10 (IANS) A restraining order filed against the “Orange Is the New Black” star Taryn Manning by former friend and make-up artist Holly Hartman has been dismissed.
“The domestic violence restraining order filed by Hartman has been dismissed,” an attorney for Hartman told eonline.com.
“We are preparing to file a new, more compressive, petition later this week,” the attorney said.
The case was dismissed because Hartman did not show up for the court hearing.
Two weeks ago, Hartman claimed in a court document that Manning “head-butted her in the face, whipped her with a wet towel, sprayed Windex in her eyes and mouth and put her in a headlock”.
Meanwhile, Manning, who got into a drunken fight with Hartman in 2012, claimed Hartman was her stalker.
The actress and her legal team denied the allegations, saying: “The court has already denied the request by Hartman for a temporary restraining order. The application for the order is suspect because Manning has had no contact with Hartman in many months due to Hartman’s actions against Manning, which are currently under criminal investigation in multiple jurisdictions.”
