Former Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash has already had three molestation lawsuits against him dismissed by the court, but his accusers aren't going down without a fight!
As we previously mentioned, the cases were all thrown out due to the statute of limitations, a technicality that says lawsuits filed in the state of New York must be filed within six years of the events in question.
According to sources, all three accusers who have had their cases dismissed are planning on appealing the decision in hopes of having their day in court!
A fourth case from Sheldon Stephens is currently under review in the state of Pennsylvania, where the accuser has until he is 30-years-old to file a sexual abuse lawsuit. Sheldon is currently 24-years-old.
We sincerely hope Kevin isn't responsible for the things he's been accused of, but the alleged victims certainly deserve to be heard, especially if their stories turn out to be true.
