The order issued in Los Angeles County Superior Court in Santa Monica requires Dessarae Bradford, 31, to stay away from the actor pending an Aug. 16 hearing before a judge, a court clerk said.
The order bars Bradford from coming within 150 yards of the actor, as well as his home and workplaces.
A call to Bradford's home and e-mail seeking comment were not immediately returned Friday.
The "Tonight Show" incident occurred Thursday at NBC studios in Burbank. It was not shown in that night's broadcast.
"Mr. Farrell had never met or spoken to Ms. Bradford until the incident at 'The Tonight Show,"' said a statement from Farrell's publicist, Danica Smith.
The statement also said Bradford "has unsuccessfully pursued two fabricated lawsuits" against Farrell during the past two years. It said courts dismissed both suits, but gave no details of those claims.
In May, however, Bradford sued Farrell in federal court for libel, assault and slander, seeking $10,000 in damages. A previous suit filed in small-claims court and then in state court was dismissed.
Bradford was a ticketed member of the audience when she walked onto the set, said Burbank police Sgt. Kevin Grandalski.
"She gave him either papers or books. She gave him some object," Grandalski said.
