Darroll sued Hirsch and his personal assistant, Wendy Linares. She brought causes of action for sexual harassment, wrongful termination, stalking, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress against Hirsch; and causes of action for stalking, intentional infliction of emotional distress and conspiracy against Linares.

Darroll contended that after breaking up with Hirsch, he attempted several times to reconcile and took retaliatory actions when Darroll refused. She claimed that Hirsch wrongfully terminated her from her job at the salon, and that his ongoing campaign that ensued served as sexual harassment, stalking, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress. She claimed Hirsch continued to send letters about getting back together, which coincided with the incidents and acts taken against her.

Darroll contended that Hirsch, or someone hired by Hirsch, removed oil from her car, causing it damage, and that Hirsch was also responsible for smashing her cousin's car windows and incinerating her car while it was parked outside her aunt and uncle's house in San Diego. Darroll claimed that the defamatory remark posted about her on a social networking website was traced to an I.P. address belonging to the sister of her former manager, both of whom were associated with Hirsch.

Darroll contended that Linares had full disclosure of Hirsch's actions, and assisted him in stalking, defaming and inflicting emotional distress.
