A HRO was filed against Dede Evavold alleging that posts on the blog “Red Herring Alert” discussing the Grazzini-Rucki case constitute harassment. The case has been ongoing for nearly a year.
There has been no direct evidence to support that Evavold has authored the posts that are the subject of the HRO.
Evidence Evavold obtained in discovery confirm this:
7/19/2017, Gilbertsen, John P: “I was able to locate a speicif article reference by the victim (David Rucki) and it did contain information and commentary on the victim(s), much what was negative and sensationalistic in nature. However, I was unable to determine who in fact runs the blog, as the postings are under Aliases which do not clearly identify the person posting…”
And,“When I reported back to Supervisor Griffin I indicated I did not feel there was information that we could glean that make it clear Ms. Evavold is the writer or runs the blog..” Dakota County ADMITS Charging Evavold with Probation Violation Despite No Proof of Wrongdoing

An Update from Dede Evavold on what she calls the “fraudulent HRO” filed against her: MA’AM, YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO SHUT YOUR PIE HOLE!
Excerpt from Michael Brodwhore’s Missing in Minnesota:
“Lisa Elliott, who serves as the attorney for the Rucki family, filed an emergency motion with the court yesterday which included over 200 pages of exhibits documenting Evavold’s repeated violations of an Harassment Restraining Order (HRO) granted by a court in Dakota County in July 2017.
Late yesterday afternoon, the court granted Elliott’s request for an emergency hearing and scheduled the hearing for February 27, at Dakota County Western Service Center in Apple Valley, Minnesota.”

David Rucki is going to have to get legislation to become a protected class that qualifies for special protection by a law. You know, all people are equal, but some are more equal than others.
All he has to do to gain an advantage over someone and throw them under the legal bus is make claims of “Ruckiism”. Oh, I guess he already has that advantage!
There are two adults included in the petition for a Harassment Restraining Order (HRO) filed against Dede Evavold – petitioner (and father) David Rucki, and an adult daughter. Two adults can only be listed jointly on a HRO under special legal circumstances – marriage or legal guardianship.
The adult daughter has not filed her own petition against Evavold, and has not signed the HRO filed by her father. The adult daughter has never appeared in court, or offered any sworn testimony regarding harassment.
Consider this: Minnesota Judicial Branch: Help Topics Domestic Abuse & Harassment says that,“An adult can ask the court (petition) for an order on behalf of another adult if there is a court order granting legal guardianship. A Power of Attorney does not give someone the ability to file for a Harassment Restraining Order for another adult…“
Is the adult daughter under the legal guardianship of her father?? Currently that question remains unanswered. -If the adult daughter is NOT under legal guardianship, Evavold may have a claim to dismiss the HRO filed against her if she can prove it was improperly filed. Stay tuned as proceedings continue in this case full of twists and turns!
