This chapter discusses the prosecution of celebrity stalkers, and describes cases brought against celebrity stalkers in the US court system. These types of cases raise certain trial issues and dynamics that are not present in other kinds of cases in which the victim and/or the defendant are noncelebrities. Some of these differences involve the nature of the stalker himself or herself, such as the stalker's need for attention and notoriety or specific forms of mental disorder such as erotomania.
