Attorneys for both sides were in court on Wednesday morning where Barnes’ lawyer, Larry Bakman, argued that Govan is in violation of the restraining order he got against her last month.
Barnes claims that Govan has texted the kids on multiple occasions, initiated unmonitored FaceTime calls, came within 100 yards of their son at his football game, and used tracking software on their kids’ electronic devices to keep tabs on them.
Govan’s attorney, Mark Gross, argued that majority of the allegations do not constitute a violation of the order. Gross also stated he intends to file a motion to dismiss.
The judge did not make a ruling and both sides are due in court in February.
The restraining order stems from an incident that occurred just on the Friday before Labor Day when Govan was arrested on a charge of felony child endangerment after an argument with Barnes at their children’s school.
We’re told Barnes had scheduled custody with the ex-couple’s twin boys as part of their court order, but Govan showed up after school to pick them up for Labor Day weekend.
After Matt Barnes challenged Gloria Govan’s custody, she allegedly became extremely upset, followed Barnes’ vehicle and allegedly put Barnes and the children in fear for their lives with aggressive driving maneuvers.
After police were called, Govan was arrested for child endangerment.
Barnes was successful earlier this month in getting his child support payments reduced from $20,000 per month to just $7,500.
