    Seems like Vic has a gofundme page set up (or more accurately, someone set one up on his behalf) in order to take certain people to court. If you google it, you can find it. They've raised over 100k to cover the hefty legal fees it'll likely require to get to the bottom of these "allegations".

    Sounds reasonable to me. And I honestly hope he is successful. If I'm correct, all the "inappropriate fan stuff" has been debunked (as in the cited / suggested incidents / pictures have been demonstrated to be misconstrued or altered".

    The allegation that concerns me is regarding an incident supposed to have been between Vic and Monica Rial. If it turns out true then let an appropriate criminal trial take place and ascertain guilt / innocence.

    What has really left a bad taste in my mouth has been the summary actions by Funimation, other employers, colleagues of Vic, etc...

    I hope Vic gets every ounce of justice and penny he deserves (going both ways).

    Edit:

    - The petition made:

    Look at the exhibits at the end, interesting.

    *Vic ate a jelly bean with Monica Rial's name on it... interesting to say the least.

    I'm reminded of this scene from Star Trek: TNG... it's always good to try and lot let yourself fall prey to "villains who cloth themselves in good deeds".

    Seems like that among the defendants listed (Funimation, Monical Rial, Ronald Toye, and Jamie Marchi)... that Monica and Rial have hired a lawyer who is communicating with Vic's lawyer.

    On the other hand, it appears that Jamie Marchi has been repeatedly avoiding being served her notices. (lol)

    Read Vic's deposition... spent about 2.5 hours reading it.

    Some interesting "facts" / revelations.

    - He claims that he has had some consensual encounters with adults while attending conventions (implied to be sexual in nature).
    - He admitted to have hired prostitutes/escorts a single time in the past.
    - He admitted to asking two women (twins who cosplay and he had seen at conventions a couple of times) to come to his room. He stated that, while inside of his room, when he communicated his sexual intent, that the twins left.
    - Learned that his ex-wife made a statement (and Vic admitted to "making mistakes and regretting it) suggesting that Vic basically cheated on her multiple times.
    - Vic made an allegation (based off of a rumor from his connections with con-organizers) that FUNimation pressured at least one convention to retract an invitation / cancel an appearance contract with Vic. No factual evidence provided yet.
    - Vic alluded that other convention organizers mentioned that there were other voice actors (implied by Vic to have been Monica or Ron) who communicated with the organizers to get Vic's attendance rescinded. No factual evidence provided yet.
    - Vic stated that he may possibly sue some other people / magazines for in the future.
    - Probably 1/4 of his deposition was in regards to the GoFundMe set up by Nick Rekieta.
    - Apparently, there was a small sect of Vic's fanbase that refer to him as "The Fuhrer"... which along with Vic once describing a ruckus in another room as a "holocaust" is the source for claims of antisemitism levied against him.

    ---

    Seems that FUNimation made a request for a motion to dismiss (due to their claim that Vic has not satisfied the prima facie evidence requirement - by preponderance of the evidence - that FUNimation defamed Vic or interfered with his contracts / livelihood).

    Seems that Monica Rial and Ron Toye are trying to get Nick Rekieta deposed... appears to be a tactic to target the "war chest" and how it may or may not be being used to fund Vic's legal / attorney / retainer fees.

    The depositions of Vic, Ron, and Monica are available for viewing. It's very interesting. I was only able to find them on the "Rekieta Law" channel of youtube. Warning: Nick Rekieta can be crass... you will have listen to the occasional comment from him.

    Edit: Ron Toye stated that he didn't remember making hundreds of tweets concerning Vic... Vic's lawyer had him go through each, tweet by tweet, and Ron said he didn't remember posting a single tweet.

    Yeah, reading up on it, I've come to the conclusion that he is a bit of a predator. There is no way, absolutely NO WAY, a man in his position should be having any sort of "sexual encounters" with adults, consentual or otherwise at his conventions. It's not against the law, but it certainly goes against common decency and general etiquette in relation to his fans. The fact that he invited those twins to his hotel room makes my skin crawl. The position he has as a celebrity gives him a sort of power over his fans. Some people tend to act really stupid and star struck around their heroes and it doesn't give him the right to use that. He wouldn't be the only person that does this though, unfortunately.

    The other voice actors in this case sound like a bunch of assholes though.
