The lawsuit that led to James Franco taking a break from acting was filed in 2019 by Sarah Tither-Kaplan and Toni Gaal. The two alleged that Franco and his associates used their power as a teacher and employer to engage in widespread inappropriate and sexually explicit behavior towards female students, promising to provide them with the opportunity to take part in their projects. Franco and his business partner Vince Jolivette claimed they were victims of fraud, alleging that they paid $300 a month for an acting school opened in 2014, and that they were intimidated and sexually objectified.
Although Franco’s lawyers dismissed the allegations in the case as “false and provocative, legally baseless”, they agreed to pay $2,235,000 to settle last summer.
