Judge Grants Rob Morrison Modified Protective Order for Sake of His Son

Rob Morrison has been under a protective order, keeping him 100 yards away from his CBS MoneyWatch wife, Ashley Morrison, since the alleged choking incident last month.

Morrison, who resigned from WCBS-TV has, according to the New York Daily News, received many calls from his wife in the ensuing weeks. Now for the first time since the February 17th arrest, the court says he is permitted to return the call.

A Connecticut judge modified the protective order Tuesday, allowing Rob to call, text, or email Ashley, for the sole purpose of discussing their seven-year-old son. But Judge David Tobin ruled that can only happen once a day.

Morrison’s million-dollar home is still off-limits to him and he is reportedly banned from driving with his son.

Morrison, talking to FishbowlNY,  denying reports of writing a tell-all book. He then turned the focus to his son, Jack.

“My son had the worst February vacation of his life,” Morrison said Monday. “He couldn’t go outside of the house because the paparazzi would just camp there. The poor kid couldn’t go outside and play with his friends… He was scared. He’s confused. He doesn’t understand what’s going on.”

Morrison’s lawyer, Robert Skovgaard, would only refer to the original statement that says the “allegations have been greatly exaggerated.”
