Actress Alyson Hannigan gets restraining order against alleged stalker
The final order approved Wednesday by Los Angeles Superior Judge Carol Boas Goodson also prohibits John Hobbs from writing online about her or contacting her in any way. Boas Goodson noted that Hobbs had not objected to the order.
The order replaces a temporary restraining order Hannigan obtained last month after Hobbs allegedly repeatedly threatened in online postings to kill her and her husband, Alexis Denisof.
The actress noted in court papers that she never met the man, saying she was "in severe fear for my safety and the safety of my family."
"With that said, in 2013 I still can marry you tomorrow. I can kill you tomorrow too. Cause I simply like and love you as you live life. Aly ... It doesn't end. Even after death," stated a Facebook posting allegedly written by Hobbs and included in the court filing by Hannigan's lawyers.
In seeking the order, Hannigan, 38, who starred in the "American Pie" movies and the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" TV series, noted that Hobbs had posssessed a gun permit since 2000 and previously had been discharged from a mental health hospital. He lives in Nashua, N.H.
