These are truly the worst kinds of things to have to report.
X-Men director Bryan Singer officially filed a motion to dismiss the sex abuse case against him on Thursday!
In his motion he claimed that there wasn't a legal basis for the lawsuit, and that it was improperly brought against him by a British actor who remains anonymous, and who is only identified as “John Doe 117.”
On top of that, he's seeking a $300,000 bond from the actor to cover Bryan's anticipated litigation costs, which, according to the motion, are most likely to be “exorbitant.”
With a hearing on the various motions made in this case being set for August 18, we'll see if the judge acquiesces to his and the other defendant' demands!
