Austin American-Statesman - - TUESDAY BRIEFING -

San­dra Bul­lock ob­tained a tem­po­rary re­strain­ing or­der Mon­day in Los An­ge­les against a 41-year-old man ac­cused of stalk­ing the Os­car-win­ning ac­tress since 2003.

Bul­lock’s at­tor­ney ob­tained the or­der against Thomas James Wel­don, who has been the sub­ject of pre­vi­ous court or­ders to stay away from the ac­tress.

Bul­lock, 45, who lives in Austin, first ob­tained a re­strain­ing or­der in Cal­i­for­nia against Wel­don in 2003, but that or­der ex­pired in 2009. He vol­un­tar­ily en­tered a mental in­sti­tu­tion in Ten­nessee, and the ac­tress sued the state in 2006 to re­quire it to no­tify her of his re­lease.

Bul­lock’s pre­vi­ous court fil­ings have ac­cused Wel­don of re­peat­edly try­ing to con­tact her and trav­el­ing around the coun­try in an at­tempt to meet her.

The ac­tress re­cently fi­nal­ized her divorce from biker busi­ness­man
