if someone can tell who is being restrained, it would likely be held valid. For example, saying "Jon" instead of "John" will likely have little effect. Or saiyng "Laurence" instead of "Lawrence." On the other hand, saying the person's name Robert Johnson and his real name is Throckmorton P Gildersleve, its obviously meant for someone else and can be ignored. terrill corley * As noted minor misspellings of a name are irrelevant as to the validity of the court order. However, one should never ignore any order from the court regardless of the issue. If a person is wrongly named in any court order it is imperative that the matter be attended to at once to avoid future problems with the justice system.
