Thursday morning, a judge granted a motion to allow Huth to amend that petition. She can now file under the Stalking No-contact Order Act and the state's Domestic Violence Act.
Huth's lawyer told the judge Gerard threatened to use taxpayer resources to intimidate her and that he left voice-mails for her threatening to have the city attorney prosecute her.
Mayor Gerard denies the accusations. Gerard released this statement:
I have not had contact with Huth since last summer
and her first request for an order of protection was
immediately denied. Many of the things discussed
in court today pertained to using an elected official's
likeness to sell a product, which is prohibited by state
law. I am unclear why this would be relevant, and
continue to hope... these endless complaints and
filings will soon cease.
