Ohio Woman Attacked By Ex-Boyfriend After Judge Leaves Them Alone In Court To Look Into Her Requested Protective Order

rashadgreenecourtroom-assultThere was a highly disturbing scene in a Domestic Relations courtroom this month after a judge left a woman with her ex-boyfriend in a room despite her saying that she was fearful of him and seeking protection. In the video below, Rashad Greene, 30, proceeded to attack Dominique Morrow, 28, in the courtroom.


Morrow was seeking a restraining order against Greene after alleged threats and physical abuse. Magistrate Tracy Stoner decided to leave them in the room to confirm information in the case, but does not take the logical step of having security in the room. Greene is shown getting increasingly animated with Morrow and then attacks her. His grandmother tried to step in front of him, but he shoves her to the wall. He is finally subdued by a sheriff deputy with a stun gun — a deputy who should have been asked to be present for the entire hearing.

Green is now charged with domestic violence and booked into the county jail. I am not sure why there are not additional charges related to an attack in a courthouse.

By the way, after the attack, Morrow was given a temporary protection order barring Greene from having contact with Morrow.

  1. I agree !00% with Mark it also appears in the video that no one check on the woman to see if she’s ok.
    What’s up with that?

  2. This is so very sad. You can see how afraid the judge is upon returning and finding this violence. But if the judge had taken heed in the victim’s fear proper precautions would have neen taken. The judge was not looking for proof. She is nonchalant about the case and does not care.

  3. Wait…. There is clearly the need for the RO…. No doubt….. Sure a deputy should have been positioned….. There are two people that were assaulted….. The grandmother and the petitioner…..

    Question…. Why, where the altercation took place should add additional charges is beyond me….. It should/could be a factor in sentencing…..

  4. “I am not sure why there are not additional charges related to an attack in a courthouse.”

    I’m with AY on this one. I don’t see why the locus of the attack merits extra charges as DV happens where it happens. I can see maybe stacking the charges by tacking on a disturbing the peace or some such, but other than it being a public venue I don’t see anything specifically sacrosanct about a court building that alone merits special charging. Maybe a factor in sentencing though. That seems more than reasonable.

    However, given the evidence and the circumstance, I’m guessing Ms. Morrow won’t have a problem getting the TRO renewed.

    This guy is an animal.

  5. The only extra charges I could see is disorderly conduct or maybe intimidating a witness, though the latter is a stretch.

  6. A temporary protection order?? How maganamous of her. But then it was better than what I got……….Nothing. I did survive the follow-up attempted murder. There’s got to be a better way to deal with these thugs.

  7. I say this judge really needs to review her opinion about how to proceed in the future when a woman is left behind with a man she told the judge she is scared of. What is wrong with her?

  8. Magginkat, a “temporary” restraining order in that jurisdiction does not mean what it might sound like; i.e., that the order is necessarily short-lived. Such an order prohibits Greene from having any contact with Morrow, and stays in effect until it is modified by the Court. It’s a good thing here–and necessary.

  9. Mike, you said: “Perhaps it was the Judge’s plan to see if there really was evidence of the threat she claimed?”

    That’s a very interesting idea, but only if the court officers were watching the video and were positioned in such a way that they could have stopped Greene cold at the point that he got out of his chair. The delayed response time in the video suggests that the officers were responding to the screaming in the courtroom, and indicates that they were not prepared for the possibility that Greene would demonstrate precisely the kind of conduct that Morrow warned the court about.

  10. Mike A,

    The only thing wrong with your post….. I didn’t say it… Succinct and to the point…. Thank you…

  11. “That’s a very interesting idea, but only if the court officers were watching the video and were positioned in such a way that they could have stopped Greene cold at the point that he got out of his chair.”

    Ralph,
