'Independence Day' actor Jeff Goldblum is a little bit worried. Early Friday, the actor's lawyer went to court and asked for a restraining order against a woman who's been stalking him since 2001, TMZ.com reports. The woman, Linda Ransom, is days away from being released from a mental institution where she's been since 2009 after being declared incompetent.

The judge hearing the case decided to refuse the request; he said Goldblum would have to wait for her to make a new threat before he could issue a restraining order. Ransom has been previously arrested five times for trespassing and stalking.

Goldblum had a prior restraining order against her but it expired while she was institutionalized. He was recently notified her release date was approaching and asked his lawyer to request an updated order.
