A judge has granted a civil restraining order against a man accused of stalking Ryan Seacrest.

The order issued Tuesday requires Chidi Benjamin Uzomah Jr. to stay 100 yards away from the radio and television personality. A criminal court judge granted a similar order against Uzomah earlier this month.

The 25-year-old remains in a Los Angeles jail, charged with felony stalking. He was arrested outside Seacrest's workplace on Oct. 30, just weeks after he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges in Orange County, Calif. stemming from an incident with Seacrest's bodyguard after an event.

Seacrest, who hosts "American Idol," did not attend the court hearing in Los Angeles.

Uzomah has pleaded not guilty to stalking Seacrest.
