The court also prompted him to file an appeal. But, Yesterday, Vic lost his appeal on all accounts; in addition to that, he might have to pay excessive legal fees to those who were defending themselves against his lawsuit.
On Thursday, in the 2nd court of appeals in texas, the court could not provide the court with enough evidence proving the statements made against him were wrong. He was ordered to pay $250,000 in attorney fees to Funimation and other voice actors like Monica Rial, Jamie Marchi, and Ron Toye.
The amount could be an hour more than what was stated since the court is redetermining the amount owed to Toye and rial.
Rial took to Twitter saying, #itsover. She also added –
“I wanted to thank all of you for your love and support. I have been a part of the anime community for 23 years and I love it. Here’s to moving forward, healing, and celebrating anime!”
