James Franco has opted to settle the 2019 lawsuit alleging that the actor intimidated his students into sexual situations at the acting school he founded.
Two of the actor’s former students at his Studio 4 school, which is no longer running, agreed to drop their claims. The sexual exploitation claims are being dismissed without prejudice, meaning they can be re-filed. Fraud allegations included in the suit will be subject to limited release.
It is not known how much money was involved in the settlement deal.
