Judge tosses Letterman restraining order
Woman had claimed host caused her ‘mental harassment’
SANTA FE, New Mexico (AP) — A state judge has lifted a restraining order granted to a Santa Fe woman who accused talk-show host David Letterman of using coded words to show that he wanted to marry her and train her as his co-host.
Judge Daniel Sanchez on Tuesday granted a request by lawyers for Letterman, host of CBS’ “Late Show,” to quash the temporary restraining order that he earlier granted to Colleen Nestler.
She alleged in a request filed December 15 that Letterman has forced her to go bankrupt and caused her “mental cruelty” and “sleep deprivation” since May 1994.
Nestler requested that Letterman, who tapes his show in New York, stay at least 3 yards away and not “think of me, and release me from his mental harassment and hammering.”
