Embattled voice actor Vic Mignogna, who has been accused of sexual harassment, is filing a lawsuit against Funimation and several other voice actors.
According to Variety, this information comes from court documents, which specify the lawsuit claims "defamation and other charges." That outlet reports, "Mignogna’s suit stated that he is suing for interference in other work contracts and that the charges made against him accusing him of sexual harassment are false, and affected his career due to not only Funimation’s decision to no longer work with him, but conventions also canceled his appearances."
Mignogna has denied the claims against him, which he reasserts in the court documents. The court papers go on to say that his career has been affected by the accusations, which have seen conventions cancel his appearances.
Mignogna is seeking “monetary relief over $1,000,000.00" in addition to that to which he “may be justly or equitably entitled.”
Mignogna is known for his roles as Edward Elric in the Fullmetal Alchemist series, Broly in the Dragon Ball films and Junpei Iori in Persona 3, in addition to many, many other roles. Following accusations of misconduct in January for allegations dating back to 2008, he was removed from Rooster Teeth's RWBY and Funimation cut ties with him, replacing him for the English-language dub of The Morose Mononokean Season 2.
