Genevieve Sabourin's lawyers asked a judge to throw out the case on "constitutional" and other grounds in New York City on Thursday, reports AFP.

Judge Mark White set a Sept. 19 hearing for his ruling on the defense motion. In the meantime, the judge told Sabourin to refrain from contacting Baldwin, according to AFP.

According to authorities, Baldwin, 54, told police that the 40-year-old Sabourin had been sending him emails for several weeks and that the notes were disturbing. She professed her love for him, begging to have his children and telling him to leave his wife, he said, according to police.

The two met a decade ago on the set of "The Adventures of Pluto Nash," in which he had a cameo and she was a publicist.

Baldwin recently married his 28-year-old fiance, yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas at St. Patrick's Old Cathedral in New York. He was previously married to actress Kim Basinger, and they have a daughter named Ireland.
