In 1984, Richard Farley met new co-worker Laura Black at the Sunnyvale, California office of their employer ESL. He was instantly attracted to Laura and asked her out on numerous occasions but she politely refused his advances. Unwilling to take no for an answer, Farley proceeded to stalk Laura relentlessly.

After four years of Farley's constant harassment, Laura saw no option but to take out a temporary restraining order against him. A court date was set for February 17th, 1988 to make the order permanent. On February 16th, Richard Farley went on a shooting spree at ESL, murdering seven people and wounding four others.
