Famed Producer Garth Ancier

Sues Man Who Accused Him

A Hollywood bigwig is turning the tables ... SUING the man who accused him of molesting him as a teenager.

Garth Ancier -- who produced lots of shows, including "The Ricki Lake Show," "Married with Children," "The Simpsons" and "In Living Color" -- is going after 31-year-old Michael Egan, who claimed in both a lawsuit and a news conference that Ancier molested him at Hollywood parties and on vacation between the ages of 15 and 17.     

Egan dropped his lawsuit against Ancier, and now the producer is going after Egan and his lawyer, Jeff Herman, for malicious prosecution.  Ancier says in his suit Herman's purpose was evil -- to drum up business for himself, and he says Egan is an outright liar.

Ancier claims his reputation was badly damaged by the lawsuit and other publicity and now he's out for blood.

IN MY OPINION    

GOOD FOR HIM!
He needs to learn a lesson.
Never accuse someone if they're innocent.
His credibility is shot and he made himself look like a liar.

How ridiculous! What does he think he's going to get in the way of damaged from this young accuser? STUPID. I guess just getting the judgment is what he's after. Talk about a waste of legal fees!!

Ancier's lawyer is going to do to Egan something very similar to what Egan falsely accused Ancier of doing. But this time I don't think he's going to like it (or get paid for it).

Somehow I think if Garth Ancier knew anyone could dig pedo stuff up on him he wouldn't be doing this. I hope they nail that little money grabbing freak, and not in a good way.

Good for him. That guy is such a liar. He won't get two cents out of him but sue his lying mother****ing piece of **** worn out ass. His **** has stuck since day one. Michael Egan is a piece of **** who will sue someone for sharing an elevator with him. He needs to be thrown in jail where he can be ****ed like he wants to be. Trash.

If Egan thought he got screwed as a kid, he is going to get it much worse after filing all of these lawsuits. And the guys will not be using lube.

Excellent. He should gather up a posse of Jew lawyers to go after the Jew lawyer who worked with the creep who tried to sue him, empty all the pockets of the extended family, and then go after the guy and his extended family, put them all in the poor house and/or out on the street, maybe give them a few good kicks to the teeth and then carve into their foreheads "LOSER".
