LOS ANGELES – A judge has refused to grant Lenny Dykstra a temporary restraining order against a man the former baseball player claims is threatening his finances and freedom.
An attorney for Dykstra sought the order against Pennsylvania resident Daniel Herman.
Superior Court Judge Carol Boas Goodson refused Tuesday to grant the order, citing freedom of speech issues.
Dykstra's filing claims Herman has tried to convince federal prosecutors that the former player is a flight risk. It also claims Herman posted racist messages on Dykstra's Twitter feed after Dykstra allowed him to run it.
Attempts to reach Herman were unsuccessful.
