   Section  1. Subdivision 1 of section 352.3 of the family court act, as
 amended by chapter 532 of the laws  of  2008,  is  amended  to  read  as
 follows:
   (1)  Upon  the  issuance  of an order pursuant to section 315.3 or the
 entry of an order of disposition pursuant to section 352.2, a court  may
 enter  an  order  of  protection  against  any respondent for good cause
 shown. The order may require that the respondent: (a) stay away from the
 home, school, business or place of employment  of  the  victims  of  the
 alleged  offense; or (b) refrain from harassing, intimidating, threaten-
 ing or otherwise interfering with the victim or victims of  the  alleged
 offense  and  such  members of the family or household of such victim or
 victims as shall be specifically named by the court in  such  order;  or
 (c)  refrain  from intentionally injuring or killing, without justifica-
 tion, any companion animal the respondent knows to be owned,  possessed,
 leased,  kept  or  held  by the person protected by the order or a minor
 child residing in such person's household; OR (D) REFRAIN FROM  REMOTELY
 CONTROLLING ANY CONNECTED DEVICES AFFECTING THE HOME, VEHICLE OR PROPER-
 TY  OF THE PERSON PROTECTED BY THE ORDER. "Companion animal", as used in
 this subdivision, shall have the same meaning as in subdivision five  of

 OR  OTHER PHYSICAL OBJECT THAT IS CAPABLE OF CONNECTING TO THE INTERNET,
