Jeff Goldblum in Fear

Seeks Restraining Order

11/19/2010 9:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jeff Goldblum's lawyer went to court today and asked for a restraining order against a woman who's about to get out of a mental institution -- a woman who has been stalking him since 2001 ... but the judge refused to issue an order, telling Goldblum's lawyer he had to wait for her to create a fresh threat.

Linda Ransom -- who has been arrested 5 times for trespass, stalking, etc. -- is just days away from getting out of a mental institution after being declared incompetent in 2009.

Goldblum (above, driving in L.A. today) -- who had a restraining order against Ransom which expired while Ransom was locked up -- was just notified Ransom is days away from getting out, so he had his lawyer go to court today and ask the judge for a new order.

But the judge decided there was no need for a new order, and that Goldblum should just wait until she gets out of the mental institution and threatens him again.

Scary.

A restraining order will not stop a bullet. Mr Goldblum get a gun. If you come within sight of this woman, protect yourself. Better to be judged by 12 than carried by six.

Wow that judge is retarded. An example of how California can be so out of touch, like our President.

Even though I can understand the law here, I think this is a job for Tony Soprano.

The woman is clearly a threat...I thought there were special stalking laws enacted to avoid the possibility of some weirdo MURDERING you. This woman has demonstrated that she has an obsession with Goldblum and it is in the judges range to institute an order to protect him from her...my God...what does it take to get a little protection in California? DEATH?

I've been having nice dreams about him for years. He's so hott and even though sometimes I think he's off his rocker, it just adds to the lust.

All he has to do is get together with Will Smith, grab that beeeeach and fly her to that mother alien spaceship out there in space and drop her crazy azz off.

Why would you use a pic of Jeff on the phone, while driving? Couldn't the police issue him a ticket from a pic like that... totally distracts from the seriousness of the story... a pic of the psycho stalker would've been better so we're all aware of the person in question. I'm sure it's a stressful time for Jeff right now...

I thought the stalking and harassment laws were stricter in California. Guess not. Maybe he should move here where I was witness to a judge issuing a *lifetime* restraining order between 2 quarreling neighbors.
