The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office has declined to pursue charges against Toback for five sexual misconduct claims against him due to the statute of limitations.
Writer/director James Toback, best known for movies like Bugsy, Two Girls and A Guy, and Black & White, is being accused by multiple women of sexual harassment over a 22 year period.
According to The Los Angeles Times, Toback is being accused by 38 women -- 31 of whom went on record with the paper -- describing an alleged pattern of intimidation and inappropriate behavior, including lewd comments and touching.
Toback, 72, denied the allegations to the Times, and said he either had never met or or barely recalled meeting the women making the claims. He also indicated that it was "biologically impossible" for him to engage in the behavior he is accused of due to health issues, including diabetes and a heart condition that required medication.
ET has also reached out to Toback and his rep for comment.
In the wake of the article, The Fosters star Sherri Saum shared her own alleged experience with the director on Twitter, using the hashtag "#pig."
The allegations against Toback are yet another story coming out of Hollywood about women being sexually harassed and assaulted in the industry, after the Harvey Weinstein scandal opened a floodgate of women sharing their alleged experiences.
Reese Witherspoon recently shared her own story harassment and assault at the age of 16 at Elle's 24th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration earlier last week.
"Hearing all the stories these past few days and hearing these brave women speak up tonight about things that we’re kind of told to sweep under the rug and not to talk about, it’s made me want to speak up and speak up loudly because I actually felt less alone this week than I have ever felt in my entire career," she expressed. "I have just spoken to so many actresses and writers, particularly women, who have had similar experiences and many of them have bravely gone public with their stories."
