A lawsuit filed against James Franco by a disgruntled university professor has been thrown out of court.

Former New York University lecturer Jose Angel Santana filed a defamation lawsuit against the Spider-Man star in September (12), claiming the actor made "disparaging and inaccurate public statements" about him after receiving a poor grade in his class.

The star hit back by filing his own set of documents, asking the case to be thrown out due to free speech laws.

Justice Saliann Scarpulla, the judge presiding over the case, sided with Franco on Wednesday (10Apr13) and tossed out the lawsuit on technical grounds, according to the New York Daily News.
