Jeff Goldblum Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

Astrid Stawiarz/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Actor Jeff Goldblum was granted a three-year restraining order Tuesday against a woman he claims has been stalking him for more than 10 years, reports Eonline.com.  The actor did not attend the hearing.

The woman, identified as Linda Ransom, was not happy about Los Angeles Judge Carol Boas Goodson's decision, and yelled at the judge. 

Judge Goodson snapped back, "Mr. Goldblum wants nothing to do with you.  This harassment has got to stop."

Ransom, who, according to court papers is a former mental patient, responded, "Mr. Goldblum is being harassed because the legal system is negligently violating my rights." 

Ransom admitted showing up at Goldblum's residence uninvited, but claimed she did so because one of his employees attacked her.   Judge Goodson advised Ransom she needed to file a lawsuit against that specific employee instead of trespassing on Goldblum's property.

Judge Goodson ordered Ransom to stay at least 100 yards away from Goldblum until June 12, 2015.

Jeff Goldblum Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

Astrid Stawiarz/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Actor Jeff Goldblum has been granted a temporary restraining order against a woman he claims has been stalking him for more than 10 years.

A Los Angeles County judge granted the protective order against Linda Ransom on Friday after the actor claimed she had followed him in public and showed up at his residence uninvited.  In legal papers, obtained by TMZ, Goldblum wrote, "I am frightened of Ms. Ransom and feel she poses a serious threat to my personal safety."  The Jurassic Park star also alleges she showed up multiple times at his theater performances in New York City and Los Angeles.

The actor attempted to get a restraining order against Ransom in 2010 when she was due to be released from a mental institution, but a judge refused to grant it. He was told that she would need to make a "fresh threat" before an order would be granted.
