Jeff Goldblum is all smiles after an El Lay judge banned a crazed stalker from contacting or approaching him for the next three years.
A woman named Linda Ransom has apparently been after him for the last ten years "because the legal system is negligently violating" her rights, since she's been trying to pursue a case against one of his employees.
The judge didn't have a problem with her pursuing a legal case against the actor or one of his employees, but she did have a problem with the woman repeatedly showing up at his home or his public performances.
Since Ransom raised her voice at the judge and acted "irrationally" during the proceedings, Goldblum's legal team didn't even have to say a word to get a 100-yard restraining order against his stalker.
According to a sworn court declaration filed in May, the Independence Day star "experienced substantial emotional distress due to Ms. Ransom's continuous stalking, harassing, and threatening behavior."
Hopefully she FINALLY takes the hint! Unfortunately, this woman doesn't sound like a quitter.
She has a history of violating restraining orders as well as undergoing psychiatric care, which is kinda scary! We hope Mr. Goldblum's got plenty of security to back up the judges orders.
