A judge has ordered a Cohasset landlord who has twice run for selectman to stay away from his tenant and to stop his allegedly bias-motivated harassment of the man, his family, and his pizza shop’s employees.

The preliminary injunction, issued March 21 in Norfolk Superior Court against Roger Q. Hill — he was an unsuccessful candidate for Cohasset selectman in 2003 and 2006 — was the result of a complaint filed by Attorney General Martha Coakley’s office.

Hill could not be reached for comment.
