John Cusack

Avik Gilboa/

The doctor is in.

Not quite convinced that she's fit to stand trial, a judge has ordered that the woman accused of stalking John Cusack be examined by a psychiatrist before the case proceeds.

Emily Leatherman was charged with felony stalking and two misdemeanor counts of disobeying a restraining order and petty theft after being arrested March 30 when police found her too close to Cusack's Malibu home for comfort.

The complaint against her alleges she has been making untoward attempts to contact the High Fidelity star since February 2007.

L.A. Superior Court Judge Susan M. Speer ordered both sides back in court July 11.

Leatherman, who has pleaded not guilty to all of the above and has been behind bars since her arrest, is facing up to four years in prison if convicted.
