A former Mills College graduate student, who was banned from campus earlier this year, is set to go on trial on March 11. He is charged with stalking actress Uma Thurman.
Jack Jordan was a student at Mills around 2005. In December, The New York Daily News reported that Jordan was pursuing his master’s degree in Literature at Mills before he drove to New York City to pursue Thurman.
Judy Silva, assistant vice president of Marketing, released the College’s official statement on the subject of Jordan: “Jack Jordan was not a student at Mills College at the time of the alleged stalking.”
Mills administration officials would not release specific details on Jordan’s Mills career.
Niviece Robinson, assistant director of Public Safety, confirmed that Jordan has not been on campus since 2005, and that his banishment is both a formality and a precaution.
In addition to sending multiple e-mails to the “Kill Bill” actress, Jordan allegedly lived in his car on Thurman’s street, attempted to gain entry to her trailer on a movie set, and threatened to kill himself if he saw her with another man, according to TMZ, an online celebrity tabloid.
The Daily News reported that George Vomvolakis, Jordan’s attorney, said in defense of his client that he “was just a romantic, pursuing the woman he loves.”
