The TV daredevil who tried to parachute off the Empire State Building has been permanently banned from the New York City landmark. A Manhattan court ordered Jeb Corliss to stay away from the skyscraper. The ban was part of a ruling last week in a lawsuit filed by the building's management.
Corliss' lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, says the stunt jumper had already promised to avoid the building unless invited back. An Empire State Building spokeswoman didn't immediately return a call for comment Tuesday evening.
Corliss was the host of a Discovery Channel program called "Stunt Junkies" when he tried to parachute from the 86th-floor observation deck of the 102-story landmark in April 2006. Security guards stopped him.
