How is it that there is a Temporary Restraining Order against Natalia and how could it destroy her job? A temporary restraining order is normally only in effect for 30 days (and normally the parties are given notice so that they can argue the validity of it). As it is named, it is only Temporary so that it would not destroy Natalia's job (unless she can't survive 30 days working the lab alone). Also, judges are able to put in cavets such as, they may be in each other's presence as long as there are other law enforcement officials present - thus enabling her to continue working crime scenes (although not alone). As she is the 'rookie' that should not be a problem.
