Above - "Denver County Court — Waiting to Testify in Restraining Order Court" The two women in front are mother and daughter. The daughter wanted a restraining order against her boyfriend. I’m not sure why the mother was present — her daughter was uncomfortable with her. A difficult family dynamic. The man in the foreground testified about a tenant in his son’s home. Nobody wanted to be in this room.
