What is Harassment?
Harassment is an unlawful act that is committed when one person acts in a manner that knowingly and willfully annoys, harasses, alarms or acts in a way that detrimental to another person and the person’s acts have no legal basis. The attorneys at Eagle Law Offices, P.S. are very familiar with Washington State Law RCW 10.14.020, also called the anti-harassment statute. To qualify for protection under this statute the harassing behavior must occur more than once; essentially the harassing person must be following a plan of behavior. To help prove your case, the dates that harassment occurred are very helpful.
