Dragon Ball ZVoice Actor Accused Of Sexual Harassment May Have To Pay More Legal Costs Now

In 2019, embattled anime voice actor Vic Mignogna, accused of sexual harassment by several parties, filed a defamation lawsuit against former employer Funimation and several other voice actors. The court ruled against him in October of that year, prompting him to file an appeal. Yesterday, he not only lost his appeal on all counts, but may be required to pay additional legal fees to the defendants of his suit.

The Court of Appeals in the Second Appellate District of Texas found that Mignogna did not provide enough evidence to prove that some of the statements made against him were false or that any were made with malice. According to the court’s decision, Mignogna will not only be responsible for paying off fees related to his appeal, but will likely have to pay more attorney’s fees to fellow voice actor Monica Rial and her fiancé Ronald Toye. The court sent Mignogna’s lawsuit back to the lower court to come up with a higher, more appropriate attorney’s fee for him to pay, in part because the cost of Rial and Toye’s legal representation exceeded the ~$125,000 the prior court decision had previously awarded the pair.
