STMCLR 10.1 ANTIHARASSMENT PROTECTION ORDERS 1. By adoption of this local rule, the SeaTac Municipal Court hereby exercises jurisdiction and cognizance of any civil actions and proceedings brought under RCW 10.14.150, as now or hereafter amended, except the SeaTac Municipal Court shall transfer such actions and proceedings to the superior court when it is shown that the respondent to the petition is under eighteen years of age. 2. The SeaTac Municipal Court's jurisdiction pursuant to this rule shall be limited to situations: a. When the alleged acts of unlawful harassment occurred within the SeaTac city limits; or b. When the respondent resides within the SeaTac city limits at the time the petition is filed; or c. When the respondent may be served within the SeaTac city limits if it is the same county or judicial district where a respondent resides. 3. The Clerk of the Municipal Court may charge a filing fee in an amount equal to that charged by the King County District Court for the filing of a Petition for an Antiharassment Protection Order, but such filing fee shall not be less than fifty-one dollars ($51.00). The Municipal Court Judge has discretion to waive or reduce the filing fee upon a showing of indigence, financial hardship, or other good cause. [Adopted effective September 1, 2005]
