Restraining order filed against Eagle Co. state House candidate
Vail CO, Colorado
AVON, Colorado ” A temporary restraining order was filed against state representative candidate Muhammad Ali Hasan by his former girlfriend and publicist Alison Miller.
Miller accused Hasan, a Republican who is running to represent Eagle County in District 56, of harassing her by text message, attempting to break into her e-mail, and then repeatedly demanding that she sign a waiver saying she would not sue him for doing so, according to court documents.
The temporary restraining order was filed on Monday and a hearing for a permanent order is scheduled for March 10.
According to the order, Hasan cannot be within 100 yards of Miller or her children and must stay away from her home and workplace.
Miller, a former Vail Daily reporter, alleges Hasan kept tabs on her whereabouts and shows up unannounced despite being asked to stop. she also alleges Hasan tried to threaten her into signing the waiver.
“(The situation) led up to him taking me to his attorney’s office just two hours after I was released from the hospital and was ordered to bed rest and was on pain meds and anti-nausea meds, and he demanded I sign the documents before he took me home,” Miller wrote in a court petition.
Miller said she filed for the restraining order after Hasan requested that a sheriff’s deputy call her, and then disconnected her phone.
No physical assault or threats were reported.
Miller and Hasan could not be reached for comment on Thursday, and Miller’s attorney declined to comment.
