Beresford-Redman Restraining Order Dismissed

6/22/2010 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bruce Beresford-Redman's father just emerged victorious in court -- as the restraining order that was filed against him by people connected to Monica Beresford-Redman was dismissed.

As we first reported, the restraining order was filed by Norma Paula De Ahlf -- the manager of the restaurant owned by Bruce Beresford-Redman's wife. Norma claimed Bruce's father David showed up to the restaurant on May 29 with a gun.

During the hearing, David said he didn't threaten anyone at the restaurant and wasn't packing heat -- and said the reason he showed up that night was to find a witness to Monica's 2008 will.

At the end of the hearing, the judge said, "The facts of this case do not come close to supporting a claim of a credible, reasonable threat of harm" -- then dismissed the restraining order.

The Judges seem to be taking everything the family of the accused killer has to say as the gospel. WHY? One woman is already dead. Shouldn't you be better safe than sorry? Is this family well connected or what? Who do they know to win in court so much? Sounds fishy to me.

I watched this case today. I was amazed at how abrupt and gruff the judge was with the lady. Yes the lady did run on and on and not listen to the questions correctly..but you would take into consideration she was probably nervous and upset..the judge sounded like he was going through the motions and irritated to be doing his job. The old man looked like he was keeping "busy" as to not explode. At one point his attorney gave a smirky smile to him, almost as if to say "We're looking great!" This is one example of what is wrong with our justice system..and so many times why we hear someone tried to get a restraining order (big effin' deal.. give her a restraining order!!! It's HER restaurant and she has reason to be concerned with his actions and the events that happened recently!).... the next thing you hear, they are dead b/c the judge didn't give her one..the whole mess with this old man and his son is bizarre at the very least..and extremely suspicious..if they were grieving so badly..how would he have the guts to go into HER restaurant asking questions etc...pretty bold! IF THE WORLD USED COMMON SENSE NOWADAYS IT WOULD BE A MUCH SAFER AND HAPPIER PLACE!!!

Daily, Judges see so many Plaintiffs/Petitioners and Defendants/Respondents, that they become expert at readng body language and "idiots". This is one more example of Monica's family and friends behaving psycho except that the Judge put Paula in her place. No doubt there is truth to the reports that MB-R had extra marital relationships behind her husband's back with both males and females. He had to defend himself against his hostile wife. She behaved the same as these family and friends who are now verbally attacking the court's officers. We don't need another Brazilian-style bikini bar in this neighborhood. The new owners would do us proud if they changed it to an California-style bar serving ice cold USA beer, BBQ, and Hot Dogs. M-m-m!



(And, I don't mean that the hot dogs should come from the Vet/Animal Hospital across the road)

Y'know what's more shocking about this case is that everyone has already decided to convict Beresford-Redman, even the cops in Mexico didn't bother looking at anyone else!! Still aren't, let's hope they've got some damn good forensics or proof then because if he walks the whole investigation has to be restarted and too much time has already been wasted!! Mind you if they had any sort of proof whatsoever he wouldn't be walking around free in the US hm?! Mexico is renowned for not properly investigating their own cases let alone ones where foreigners are harmed or killed!! Kind of reminds you of a Dr Sam Sheppard story - convict the hubby, then when years down the line he's found to be innoccent after all he get's released, hey he's lost 10 or twenty years of his life and is penniless but what the heck hm?!! The real killer has probably killed again and all because no one did a proper job in the first place coerced by media pressure to come up with a killer!!

The Crime Producer family never called or showed for condolences in almost 2 months! Suddenly he shows up! I was friends with Monica and I would be very scared of that family! Who wouldn't?

This old Bozzo and his son are pathological liars. Even if submited to a polygraph test this two psychopaths probably will pass. Pathological liars have no problem lying and beliving their lie is true. This two pathological liars, had plan to murder Monica only to benefit from her dead. The fact that Bruce took more than 500.000 dolars in life insurance a week prior to her death, the fact this old Bozzo is claiming her house to himself, the fact that he went to her restaurant to 'check the business' and now he is saying he went there to get a witness for a 'fake' will they are trying so desperately to validate... Its just all very sick to see this two manipulating the american judicial system just to profit on Monica's death. I mean... show up in court with a fake will??? What else we need to see from this two liars?? Are this judges stupid or what?? Now Mexican authorities have formally asked the U.S. to send the accused TV producer back to the country... so... this judges are just giving power to two money hungry, pathological liars to just manipulate Monica's kids in all the way they can to try to delay this extradition process as long as possible to figure out a way out of this...

It's just a dangerous, sickening situation and I'm very worried for those two pour kids. I really hope GOD put his hands on this judges heads and may this judges realize what they are doing... :(

Oh... This old Bozzo didn't realized that having a restraining order against him could make him a criminal???!!!



What about trying to validade a fake will??? Would that make him a criminal???



What about ploting in murdering a woman to get $500.000 in life insurance??? Would that make him a criminal???



I really hope the american judicial system stop this two liars!

He really thought this woman would be the best person to ask if she was a witness to this supposed will that gives everything to the person who murdered her sister? He may not have gone there with a gun but he's full of crap about why he did.
