Restraining Order Filed, Never Served

The Daily Item of Lynn: More Coverage > Shooting victim filed restraining order against estranged husband. Since he went on to shoot his wife, there is a big question in my mind as to whether the order would have restrained William Brady from anything. Rita Greene-Brady was seriously wounded in the incident.

So he can't be charged with violation of the order - filed on December 5th - because it was never served. Tell me again how restraining orders are the magic shield designed to protect people from violent spouses.
