Hollywood producer Jon Peters is facing more legal woes - he's been slapped with a sexual harassment lawsuit by male co-worker BRIAN QUINTANA.
The troubled Superman Returns moviemaker co-produced forthcoming sequel Superman: Man of Steel with Quintana.
But Quintana alleges he was subjected to numerous occasions of Peters' unacceptable behaviour throughout the project, including reportedly being touched inappropriately by the producer.
The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court earlier this week (ends28Nov08), claims there were "multiple instances where he was physically sexually harassed by Peters, including being groped by male individuals at Peters' behest".
The papers go on to state Peters would "wrestle and rough up (Quintana) in a sexual manner... fondle himself in front of (Quintana)... often place his hand on (Quintana's) leg in a sexual manner", as well as "touch" his buttocks, reports the New York Post's PageSix column.
Quintana further accuses Peters of demanding he "drive male individuals onto the set for the purposes of granting sexual favours for members of the cast and crew" and "cover up allegations that... Peters engaged in sexually inappropriate acts in front of children".
The court documents also claim Peters threatened to "break his legs" and fired Quintana when he refused to sign a legal declaration stating Peters had completed his community service sentence from a 2006 conviction for driving under the influence (DUI). He was ordered to complete 40 hours of community work following the incident.
A spokesperson for Peters had yet to return comment on the reports as WENN went to press.
Quintana's lawsuit is the latest of Peters' legal issues - he is also facing two sexual harassment suits filed by former female employees, and is reportedly in trouble with the law for violating his parole in relation to the DUI arrest.
Peters is scheduled to return to court on 16 January (09) to address his alleged parole violations - including failure to complete an alcohol education program, not reporting to his probation officer, and failure to complete his community service.
