A man claims another individual is attempting to alienate him from his minor children by sending threatening e-mails and text messages.
Darrek K. Woolsey claims defendant Kenneth Ramsey began harassing Woolsey and his family last year.
According to the complaint filed Dec. 2 in Madison County Circuit Court, Ramsey allegedly aided in the violation of a protective order and has sent numerous threatening and harassing e-mails and text messages to Woolsey.
"He has been physically aggressive and he is purposefully interfering with and disrupting Plaintiff's relationship with his minor children and others," the suit states. "Defendant's clear purpose in all of these intentional acts is to cause Plaintiff misery, stress, and financial hardship, and to alienate him from his minor children and others."
Because of Ramsey's alleged actions, Woolsey claims he and his family have experienced severe distress.
"There is absolutely no justification for any of Defendant's intentional, extreme and outrageous actions," the complaint says.
In his complaint, Woolsey is seeking compensatory and punitive damages of more than $50,000, plus other relief to which he may be entitled.
W. Jeffrey Muskopf of Lashly and Baer in St. Louis will be representing him.
