The Marietta Daily Journal – State high court says employee injunction overbroad

MARIETTA — A Marietta woman with a history of mental illness who is accused of stalking her former coworkers at an Atlanta Apple Store had the injunction barring her from communication with store employees returned to a trial court Friday.

In the unanimous decision, Georgia Supreme Court Justice David Nahmias said the state’s highest court found the injunction to be “overbroad” and will send it back to the a lower court to make the ruling more specific.

In 2012, Apple Inc. sought an injunction against Catherine E. Danforth after she was fired from the Apple Store at Lenox Square Mall in Atlanta for outbursts at work in which she cried, yelled at employees and supervisors and visibly shook with anger.

She told a co-worker she had had suicidal thoughts in the past and was thinking about suicide again. Danforth has been diagnosed with and hospitalized for different mental disorders, including depression, obsessive compulsive disorder and bipolar personality disorder.
