Can a husband against whom a ‘stop order’ was “wrongly” granted as part of rabbinical court proceedings – after his wife deliberately told lies – get his own back so that she suffers for her folly ?

Yes ! Firstly, the rabbinical court can order costs against a wife who gains a ‘stop order’ against her husband on false grounds – due to lies, spite, malice or pettiness. Incidentally, if a stop order is wrongly granted against a husband by the family court as part of proceedings between them there, due to the wife’s lies, spite, malice or pettiness, it can also order costs against her.
Secondly, if , as a result of the ‘stop order’ the husband incurred damages – he can consider bringing a civil damages suit against her for financial compensation for damage caused as a result of the order granted against him.
