Santana claims Franco deserved the grade because he missed 12 out of 14 classes this semester. (Franco has also been busy this year earning a Ph.D., hosting the Oscars, starring in 900 new films, writing a dozen new novels.)
"The school has bent over backwards to create a Franco-friendly environment," Santana tells the New York Post. "They've turned the NYU graduate film degree into swag for James Franco's purposes … a possession, something you can buy."
An NYU rep tells TMZ the school has yet to review the suit, adding that Santana's claims are "ridiculous."
