BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — A judge has ordered U.S. Sen. Rand Paul's neighbor to stay away from Paul and his family while a lawsuit is pending.

The Daily News in Bowling Green reports Special Judge Tyler Gill issued a temporary injunction Monday against Rene Boucher. Boucher served 30 days on a federal charge of assaulting a congressman after Paul was tackled outside his house last fall. Paul sued Boucher in state court.

Gill also held Boucher liable for Paul's injuries in a partial motion for summary judgment.

Boucher is under federal order to have no contact with Paul. Now he must stay at least 200 feet (60 meters) away from the Pauls while Boucher is on his property and at least 50 feet (15 meters) away everywhere else.

Boucher's lawyer says his client has complied with the federal order.
