A Los Angeles judge has refused The Fly star Jeff Goldblum a restraining order against a woman who is about to be released from a mental institution.
The actor's lawyer went to court on Friday (19Nov10) and asked for a restraining order against Linda Ransom, claiming she had been stalking the star since 2001 - but the judge refused.
He insisted Goldblum would have to wait for Ransom to create a fresh threat, according to TMZ.com.
Ransom was locked up last year (09) after she was declared incompetent.
Goldblum's previous restraining order against Ransom expired while she was being treated.
