Rep. Hawk's Ex-Wife Dismisses Protective Order Against Him

Originally published:
Last modified: 2009-08-03 17:05:06

A petition for an order of protection filed last month by the former wife of a local state legislator has been dismissed in Greene County Circuit Court.

In an order signed on Wednesday, Sept. 21, Circuit Court Judge Ben K. Wexler dismissed a petition for an order of protection that had been filed Aug. 9 by Julia Hawk, former wife of state Rep. David Hawk, R-5th, of Greeneville.

The dismissal of the order of protection form signed by Judge Wexler indicated that the petitioner (Julia Hawk) had moved to dismiss the petition she filed in August.

The form signed by Judge Wexler also indicated that the court had ordered the petition for the order of protection filed last month against David Hawk be dismissed, and that costs and litigation tax associated with the case be "taxed to both parties."

Judge Wexler earlier had recused himself from hearing the case, and Circuit Judge Kindall Lawson, of Rogersville, had been assigned to it.

A hearing on Julia Hawk's petition for issuance of an order of protection against David Hawk had been scheduled before Judge Lawson in Rogersville on Oct. 17 before Julia Hawk moved to dismiss the petition.

The petition for an order of protection was dismissed on the same day that David and Julia Hawk were scheduled to take part in a Greene County Chancery Court hearing on a motion to modify the parenting plan for their minor child.

But court officials announced late Wednesday morning, Sept. 21, while Chancellor Thomas Frierson was hearing another case, that the parties in the Hawk case had reached an out-of-court agreement and that the hearing had been canceled.

Court records indicated that Judge Wexler's order dismissing Julia Hawk's petition for an order of protection was filed at 11:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 21 - about the same time an agreement was reached in the Chancery Court case involving the same parties.

In her petition for issuance of an order of protection, Julia A. Hawk alleged that David Hawk had "stalked" her on Monday, Aug. 8, a day when she stated that she had custody of the couple's 4-year-old daughter.

In telephone interviews with The Greeneville Sun last month, David Hawk strongly denied the allegations in the petition.
