Apple CEO Tim Cook Granted Restraining Order Against Stalker

awarded Tim Cook a restraining order against a Virginia woman accused of stalking the out Apple CEO, trespassing on his property, and threatening to burn down his Palo Alto home. In the restraining order application, filed last week to the Santa Clara County Superior Court of California, the 45-year-old woman is alleged to have demonstrated “erratic, threatening and bizarre” behavior, including threatening emails featuring images of loaded handguns she claimed to have purchased. Cook’s lawyers told the judge they believe the woman from McLean, Va. is armed and in the Bay Area with intentions of returning to Cook’s home or to “locate him otherwise shortly” in their filing. The court, which found the threat against Cook credible, prohibited the woman from possessing a firearm in addition to having any interaction with Apple employees, including its CEO.
