LOS ANGELES (January 8, 2013)—Actor Laurence Fishburne has been granted a temporary restraining order against an ex-convict who claims to own his home, court documents show.
Fishburne's attorney obtained the order Thursday that requires Anthony Francis, whose real name is Mark Francisco, to stay 100 yards away from the actor, his wife and daughter.
Francisco went to the actor's home on Jan. 1 and told Fishburne's wife that she and her family were living there illegally.
The filings state he also recently left a handwritten letter telling them to vacate the property and called police to try to get the Fishburne's evicted.
The filings state police told the actor to obtain a restraining order because Francis was agitated and had recently been paroled for a cyberstalking and criminal threats case.
