The woman, Chelsea Stone, alleges in the lawsuit filed Friday that Cusick, who plays Desmond Hume on the show, fondled her buttocks and breasts and kissed her on the lips in October 2007. The lawsuit claims she reported the incident to her supervisor, but was simply told to avoid the actor.

An ABC employee since 1997, Stone states that she was fired 12 days after the alleged incident in retaliation for reporting it.

The lawsuit does not specify how much she is seeking from the defendants in the case, which include Cusick, ABC and Grass Skirt Productions.
