The neighbor who attacked Rand Paul must stay away from the Kentucky senator and his family while Paul’s lawsuit against him is pending, a judge ordered Monday.

A temporary injunction that bars Rene Boucher from “any and all contact or interaction” with Paul or his family was requested earlier this month by Paul’s attorney. A Warren County judge signed off on the injunction Monday, a circuit court clerk confirmed.

Under the injunction, Boucher must stay 200 feet away from Paul and his family while Boucher is on his property and at least 50 feet away everywhere else, according to the Bowling Green Daily News. A copy of the full order was not immediately available.

Paul is suing Boucher, his neighbor who pleaded guilty to attacking the politician in November 2017 after reaching a breaking point over lawn maintenance. He was sentenced to 30 days in prison on a federal charge of assaulting a member of Congress. He’s also been ordered not to make contact with Paul or his family.
