The Nebraska Supreme Court has reversed a lower court's refusal to extend a restraining order against a man acquitted of shooting at window washers outside ConAgra's Omaha headquarters in 2012.

In late 2012, Douglas County Court granted ConAgra a temporary restraining order against Ryan Zimmerman, who was accused of shooting at window washers outside the ConAgra building where his estranged wife worked. No one was injured in the shooting and Zimmerman was later acquitted by a jury of the charges.

On Friday in a majority decision, the Nebraska Supreme Court reversed the lower court's ruling, ordering that a one-year injunction be issued against Zimmerman. In a dissent, justices William Cassel and Kenneth Stephan said Zimmerman is already barred from entering ConAgra's property and that the injunction is improper.
