Bullock Film Company Sues Mental Health Agency
SANDRA BULLOCK is suing Tennessee's mental health agency to ensure it notifies her when her alleged stalker is released from a mental health institution. The suit, which was filed last week (13SEP06) on behalf of her film company Fortis Films, does not seek financial damages but calls for the agency's agreement to alert Bullock when THOMAS JAMES WELDON is released from Middle Tennessee Mental Health Institute. The lawsuit describes Weldon's "fixation on a certain employee of Fortis Films Inc". Weldon is under court order in California to stay at least 200 feet away from Bullock since 2003, and the order has been extended until 2009. Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities spokeswoman JILL HUDSON claims not to have seen the lawsuit and declined to comment.
