Nathan Herbert, Gov. Gary Herbert's son, is fighting a stalking injunction an Orem woman obtained against him in 2010.
Aiona Butters requested the civil injunction against Herbert, claiming he stalked her at the library and gym, and inappropriately touched himself while watching her. But Herbert's attorney, Michael Petro, argued in the Utah Court of Appeals last week that there was insufficient cause for the injunction.
A stalking injunction requires a certain course of conduct two or more actions directed at a specific person. Petro argued that it was only during the last encounter between Butters and Herbert that she indicated he was bothering her. He contended that each episode should be considered on its own merits.
