Veteran TV producer Bud Yorkin has been slapped with legal action from a former house employee amid allegations he was falsely accused of rape. Noe Massin was hired to work for Yorkin's actress wife, St. Elsewhere star Cynthia Sikes, at their Beverly Hills, California estate, but claims he was recently dismissed after rebuffing their daughter's advances. He alleges the girl appeared at his bedroom door completely naked late one night and demanded to be let in. Massin refused, reportedly prompting her to run to her mother and accuse him of sexually assaulting her, reports TMZ.com. The plaintiff was subsequently fired from his job and now he is suing Yorkin, demanding damages for defamation and back wages for unpaid overtime he claims he is owed. Yorkin is known for producing a slew of hit U.S. shows, including All in the Family, Sanford and Sons and Good Times.
