This is good news for him, but he's still dealing with that other matter.
X-Men director Bryan Singer has been dropped from a federal teen sex abuse lawsuit that he was named in by an anonymous actor from the U.K. who claimed Mr. Singer had attempted to rape him in a London hotel room when the anonymous actor was only 17!
However the lawsuit from the actor who identified himself as John Doe has been dropped against Bryan Singer after the director's attorney entered in a motion to have it dismissed a few weeks ago.
The attorney had argued that the lawsuit filed against Mr. Singer was without merit.
Here's what the attorney Marty Singer said about the case being dismissed:
“We are pleased the case was dismissed.”
However this isn't the end of Bryan Singer's legal troubles just yet!
He still is fighting underage sexual abuse charges that Michael Egan III has named him in. He also named three other defendants in that case including Gary Goddard, Garth Ancier and David Neuman but those have been dismissed after those three's attorneys argued that their clients weren't in Hawaii at the time of the allegations.
Actually, Gary Goddard is still a defendant in this anonymous actor's lawsuit and his case has NOT been dismissed!
Part of the benefit of being a big time Hollywood director is you can afford high priced lawyers who know ALL the ways to get a case dismissed before a trial can start.
Bryan Singer was fortunate to have this one dismissed before trial, but will he be able to do the same thing in his other case?
Only time will tell!
