Kiefaber Ordered to Stay Away From Senator Theatre
Kathleen Cusack said that she is "terrified" of former Senator Theatre owner Tom Kiefaber.
Tom Kiefaber must stay away for six months from the theater he once owned.
Kiefaber consented to a protective order in Baltimore City District Court on Friday instructing him to stay away from Kathleen Cusack, her home and her places of employment: the Senator Theatre and Charles Theatre.
A temporary peace order had been granted against Kiefaber July 15.
Cusack sought the order after an alleged shouting match and assault at the Senator Theatre prior to the midnight showing of the Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows — Part 2 last week.
Cusack operates the Senator Theatre with her father James "Buzz" Cusack.
Following the peace order being extended, Cusack said she was pleased that Kiefaber legally has to stay away from her.
“I’m terrified of him,” Kathleen Cusack said in an interview.
District Court Judge Halee Weinstein explained to Kiefaber that he must stay away from the theater that his family operated after it was built in 1939. Friday's ruling ordering him to stay away from the theater came a day after the one-year anniversary of the last day Kiefaber legally operated the facility.
“Obviously if he walks down the sidewalk in front of the theater he’ll be in violation of the order,” Weinstein said.
Kiefaber, a candidate for Baltimore City Council President, walked out of court before speaking with a reporter from Patch.
