A judge has granted a new restraining order preventing Keya Morgan from contacting or coming within 100 yards of Stan Lee, according to Variety. The restraining order also prevents Morgan from contacting Lee's daughter J.C. Lee and brother Larry Lieber.
Morgan, a former business partner of Lee, is accused in court filings of stealing cash, memorabilia, and artwork from Lee worth more than $5 million, and manipulating the 95-year-old creator for financial gain. Lee's attorney, Jonathan Fruend, alleged in court that Lee and his bodyguards had witnessed Morgan in the act of making the thefts.
A restraining order was previously granted in June, but was rescinded in early July because Tom Lallas, the attorney who made the filing, was no longer employed by Lee at the time. Commissioner Laura Hymowitz granted the updated order. Morgan reportedly did not appear in court for the filing.
“Stan is doing pretty well,” Freund told reporters at the filing. “He’s working again, and his health is improving. He’s still creating characters.”
