Nicole Richie will be in court on Wednesday (December 1) facing-off against a photographer who she says is lurking around the pre-school where daughter Harlow, 2, attends class. According to RadarOnline, Nicole is hoping the judge presiding over the case will issue a permanent restraining order against the individual.
“Nicole’s attorneys will put on the stand several preschool teachers from Harlow’s school that have witnessed this photographer crossing the line trying to get pictures,” a source close to the situation says. “Nicole is fiercely protective of her children, and won’t tolerate this. Nicole could testify also.”
The source adds that Nicole “is very busy planning her wedding to Joel, but she will drop everything to protect their children.”
Nicole is seeking to extend a temporary restraining order – or TRO – against the photographer. According to California law, a temporary restraining order lasts for three weeks, but if the TRO is made permanent it will last up to three years.
