Actress Lydia Cornell has asked a judge to grant her a restraining order against a man she accuses of threatening her.

The Too Close For Comfort actress filed legal papers at Pasadena Superior Court in California alleging Richard Loland Lewis befriended her by claiming to be a lawyer and offering her legal advice, but then turned against her when she spurned his romantic advances.

Cornell, 59, alleges he plagued her with nasty emails and phone calls and she is asking for a court order to keep Lewis away from her and her young son, according to TMZ.com.
