To conform to a change to A.R.S. §13-3601(A)(6), Rule 6 was amended to include a “victim and defendant who currently share or previously shared a romantic or sexual relationship” within the list of statutory relationships that may give rise to the issuance of an order of protection from the court. A person in a dating relationship that does not qualify as romantic or sexual is still eligible for an injunction against harassment. Criteria for whether a romantic or sexual relationship exists (or existed) are now set out in Rule 6.
