Francis Fights the Law, One Case at a Time

10/30/2007 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Francis is fighting back against another lawsuit, this time facing accusations of sexually assaulting a woman -- that he never even met!
Tranae Hammond, Joe Francis
Tranae Hammond filed suit in July, one year after she was fired from her job at a "Girls Gone Wild" call center. Francis claims that Hammond was let go because she was late to work several times and missed other days altogether. Hammond claims in her lawsuit that she was the victim of repeated acts of sexual harassment by a supervisor named Ron -- whose last name she doesn't even know!

Francis recently exposed misrepresentations of two women who sued him for allegedly using footage of them without permission. He debunked that by providing video of their consent statement. After that video appeared, the girls dropped their case and issued an apology to Francis.

Joe's been in jail for the last six months, but has not been convicted of any crime.

Interesting how these 'cut and dried' cases are starting to fall apart. And...Would YOU sexually harass this girl? Joe Francis may be a borderline scuzzball, but some1 has to buy the Girls Gone Wild videos or he would be doing it.

DUH!

The guy is a total douchebag....BUT he has not been convicted of any crime....I hate the direction this country is going in. Think about it, any one of us can be thrown in jail because someone disagrees with your morality??? Come on. If you have a case then prosecute.If not, let him out. The douchebag will eventually break the law and end up in prison but we have to respect his rights at this time.

peace

Where is Joe Francis' lawyer???? Why isn't he getting him out of jail since he hasn't been convicted of any crimes? Is this what our justice system has turned into - that we can jail anyone just because we don't like them for some reason? Again. WHERE IS HIS LAWYER? If he has one, he's obviously not a very good one.

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be slut-whores    

I don't believe her for a minute but there is a bigger issue at play here,

Ladies, If you don't tell a man "NO" the first time, you are basically inviting further harassment.

If he does it ONCE, you are a victim. If he does it TWICE, you are a volunteer.

Once you invite this into your life, you have absolutely NO right to complain about anything. NONE. Zip. ZILCH.

THIS IS SO UNCALLED FOR. CAN YOU GET ANY MORE RACIST THEN THIS?

Although I agree she does not look like someone that he would sexually harass, your statement is assinine at best.
