Uma Thurman is at a lower Manhattan courthouse, where she is expected to testify against the man accused of stalking her.

Court officers escorted the actress through a side entrance of the state Supreme Court building Thursday morning. Thurman, wearing dark glasses and a long wool camel jacket over dark pants, kept her head down and ignored a horde of reporters and photographers.

The defendant, Jack Jordan, is accused of following and trying to contact Thurman from early 2005 until late last year.

Jordan is charged with stalking and aggravated harassment. He faces up to a year in jail if convicted.
