No Evidence For Court Order

Well they have enough evidence now! The Seattle Times: Local News: Ex-wife shot at; man kills himself

So she tries to follow the advice of the Left, which is "Get a restraining order." But she is turned down.
Papers filed in Snohomish County Superior Court said the woman had moved to Everett with her three teenage children from Madison, Wis., in June to escape her ex-husband. The woman had tried to obtain a protective order, but it was denied for lack of evidence, according to the court papers.
She moved from Wisconsin to Washington state to escape this guy. (Someone should have told her that Washington state, unlike Wisconsin has reasonable self-defense laws.)

Luckily he was a terrible shot. After he shot at her and missed,an employee of the minimart got her into an office, locked the door and called 911.

With the murder portion of his murder/suicide blocked, he went on to phase two.
The shooter, who witnesses described as 6 feet tall and weighing 300 pounds, died of a single gunshot wound to the head.

I guess if he had managed to kill her, there would have been enough evidence to issue the protective order.

Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that restraining orders should be issued on no evidence. I am saying that relying on restraining orders is not the best way to ensure your safety.
