Joe Francis: Lawsuit Gone Mild

7/31/2008 12:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A girl who said she dropped her top for Joe Francis' cameras when she was just 16 has dropped something else for Joe too -- a lawsuit.

The "GGW" founder has settled a lawsuit filed in Panama City, Fla. -- not with a payout, says his lawyer, but by dropping a countersuit against the woman. The unnamed chick had alleged she was underage when she flashed for Joe in 2002.

Francis served a year of hard time in jail, and still faces federal tax evasion charges in Cali.

Ooooo Noooo!    

The only thing worse than the stupid GGW commercials on TV would be to see Joe lifting his shirt and making a goofy face. I swear you have to be drunk or high (or maybe both) to want to order his crapy T&A videos.

It does not matter the age once a whore always a whore and Joe is not at fault for these sluts getting naked in front of the camera and lying about their ages. Freaking Skanks...

Everytime I read a story about Joe and GGW, I feel like I need to de-louse and shower.

Maybe Joe can do a new GGW video in prison, of course it will have to be Guards Gone Wild and hopefully some out of shape prisoners will have man boobs. This man is getting everything he deserves.

You know what. I don't care what anyone says, if this guys was any other color but white, he would of been in jail a long time ago. You just let a Latino or Black guys go around with a camera and ask girls to flash their boobs. Trust me, the police would be there arresting these guys before you can say Girls Gone Wild. Francis has been getting away with murder for too long. It's time they put this sleaze away and break apart his sleazy business.

What are you that Stupid?    

What I want to know is what the hell was a 16 year old doing near the guy in the first place. I do not like Joe or his stupid video's, but I smell a rat with the 16 year old. Like a set up.

I live in Panama City, FL and I can tell you this, Francis was warned by the Bay County Sheriffs Dept,, the Panama City Beach police dept., and the State Attorney that if he came here and pretty much farted the wrong way he would go to jail. He came anyway, and they watched him like a hawk, just waiting for him to slip up and it wasn't long before he did. People need to understand that yes PCB is a popular Spring Break destination, but we are also in the Bible Belt and we don't put up with this kind of junk. If this idiot would have done any kind of research on Panama City, he would've found that we have at least 8 different police departments all within a 15 mile radius, and he would have seen our town slogan for tourists, "Come here on vacation, leave on probation, come back on a violation." and that's the God's honest truth! The police here get off on arresting people for piddly crap. Hell, we have 3 city jails and 1 state prison here! All this for a town of less than 200,000 people!

He shouldn't have come here, he should've checked the girl's ID's, but then again, the girl's parents should've known where their daughters were. I have a daughter who's almost 17 and I wouldn't let her go to our beach alone, especially at night!

Not a fan of soft-core crap, but it pisses me off that these 'producers' or whatever of these lame films always end up getting the shaft from everyone when they end up filming under-aged girls. Wouldn't it be more logical to charge the liars who are claiming to be of age? It's BIG bull**** to claim these sluts don't know any better, and make excuses for them all the time when they are the ones going out of their way to get involved in porn. No coersion, no gun to their heads, so why are they NEVER accountable for their own actions?
