of stalking that is often called erotomania. amanda: a delusional disorder that could become dangerous according to professor thomas plant. it is that so-called bizarre behavior causing them to file this restraining order. we are not naming the woman because she is not currently facing charges. papers include several emails allegedly sent by her to cope with photos of a loaded pistol and package of ammo. >>'s has gone way beyond just someone who is enamored with mr. cook and wants to talk to him. what the apple team is saying is that she could be very dangerous to him. amanda: stephen clark says the order goes beyond demanding physical distance and no contact because the santa clara county judge granted the order. woman is barred from possessing guns, approaching apple employees, and entering any company property. >> this is only a civil restraining order but the next
