Your friend can call law enforcement and report the forgery. Your friend can then take a copy of the police report and submit it to the court as notice that your friend did not file or authorize the filing of the lawsuit. Regarding the lawsuit itself, even if your friend does nothing, the court will eventually dismiss the case for lack of prosecution -- and that will end the matter.
