Bryan Singer Filed A Motion To Dismiss Sex Abuse Case! You'll Never Believe What Else He Asked For!

Filed under: Legal MattersSex

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!

HOW Is Britney Spears Linked To The Sandy Hook School Shooting?! The BIZARRE TRUTH Behind Her Latest Lawsuit!

britney-spears-kevin-federline-lawsuit-hoax-convict-probation-violation-newtown-shooting

We certainly under the impression that there was no way any of what was reported was true!

But sometimes, folks, the truth is MUCH more bizarre than fiction!

Yesterday, reports surfaced that Kevin Federline's brother, Christopher, had filed a lawsuit against Britney Spears because he claimed that she had stolen his credit card and he was the real father of her eldest son, Sean Preston!

While we were certainly doubtful from the get-go, it turns out that the man responsible for the claims is not only in no way related to the pop star or her ex-husband, but is, in fact, a convicted felon who has filed MULTIPLE bogus lawsuits in the past…and even traveled to Newtown, Connecticut last week pretending to be the UNCLE of Sandy Hook gunman Adam Lanza, and was reported as such by various news outlets!

YEAH.

ALL SORTS of twisted, right?!

Luckily, as he was only released earlier this year from federal prison - stemming from conspiracy and wire fraud charges - and the terms of his probation demanded that he not leave Pennsylvania’s Eastern District judicial boundaries without permission, 35-year-old Jonathan Lee Riches is back behind bars, thanks to him being STOOPID enough to post proof of his expedition on YouTube!

However, it appears this guy is just an unstoppable, litigous force of nature, because even behind bars, he's responsible for filing HUNDREDS of bogus lawsuits under the guise of celebrities; one such recent case being when he pretended to be

Britney Spears Not Getting Married Yet, Thanks To Sam Lufti! Boo!

britney wedding will have to wait due to sam lufti

This guy continues to create new reasons for us to dislike him!

We've been hearing all about Britney Spears' plans to get married to fiance Jason Trawick for a while…but now we're hearing that their wedding will have to be delayed due to Sam Lufti! Ugh.

Britney's attorneys have recommended that she waits until her lawsuit with former manager Sam gets settled before she walks down the aisle.

Why, you might ask? Here's what a source had to say about it:

Penn State Creating A Fund For Inevitable Civil Lawsuits

Filed under: Icky Icky PooZportzLegal MattersSad SadFootball

penn state creating a fund for lawsuits

Hopefully it's a HUGE fund, because we have no doubt that the lawsuits will be plentiful and costly to the university.

Penn State's Board of Trustees Chairman Steve Garban has announced that the board will be creating a fund to deal with all the civil lawsuits that are bound to come up as a result of the ongoing scandal.

Here's what a source had to say about it:

"[He's been] discussing with fellow trustees the need to establish a fund because it's absolutely inevitable that the university is going to be sued by the alleged victims. There will be absolutely no money taken from Penn State's donations from alumni, corporations, or any other source."

"Money that goes to the the sex abuse fund will be specifically designated, and this is being done is a very discreet manner. Penn State has very, very wealthy donors, and board members, and this is who will be contributing to it."

"[It's] a foregone conclusion that there will be litigation in this matter. It could go on for years."

And here's what the source had to say about how much money will be placed in the fund:

"It will be a significant amount. It's important to emphasize again, absolutely no money that is donated to Penn Sate from the public, will be diverted. No resources will be taken from the institution, period. There will be a very strict oversight of the fund, and every dollar will be accounted for."

Certainly no amount of money can make up for all the horror that these victims endured, but at least this is a SMALL step in the right direction for the university.

The Lawyers Cometh! Arnold's Mistress Hires A Law Firm

arnolds mistress hires a law firm

And you thought things got ugly when Arnold and Sinbad rivaled over that Turbo-Man doll in Jingle All The Way

Last week, we learned that Maria Shriver had reportedly hired lawyer Laura Wasser to represent her in potential divorce proceedings against her husband.

Now, Arnold's mistress Mildred Patty Baena has ALSO brought on legal representation for usage against her former employer.

She's currently being represented by Los Angeles-based law firm Jacobson, Russell, Saltz & Fingerman.

Lawyer Michael Saltz has announced that they have "no plan to file litigation at this time."

Looks like we're right in the midst of the calm before the storm.

Enjoy it while it lasts, Arnold!
