Jose Angel Santana took court action last year against New York University, alleging he was unfairly dismissed from his job after giving Franco a 'D' grade for cutting class.
Now he has lodged papers at Manhattan Supreme Court against the actor himself, demanding unspecified damages following comments Franco made in April about his time at the university, reports contactmusic.com.
"I didn't deserve to be on the receiving end of those falsehoods. I was outraged that someone with his attendance record at Nyu had the audacity to make those statements," Santana told the New York Post.
