Restraining order against man dismissed

BISMARCK — A judicial referee has dismissed a disorderly conduct restraining order filed by the girlfriend of a white separatist against a Leith city councilman.

The Bismarck Tribune reported that Deborah Henderson sought a restraining order against Councilman Lee Cook. She alleged that Cook called her crude names and harassed her by putting up a surveillance system.

Judicial Referee Wayne Goter dismissed a temporary restraining order Monday and declined to put a permanent order in place.

Goter said he doesn’t know what transpired and doesn’t have enough evidence to say who said what.

Henderson moved to Leith in October with her boyfriend, Kynan Dutton, and their children to join Craig Cobb in an attempt to turn Leith into an all-white enclave.

Dutton and Cobb are in jail on terrorizing charges.
