Lawsuit against Kevin Spacey dismissed




Note: I'm using this older tweet because it's the most recent one related to the story. All the info after it was reported today.



The latest news updating this May 9 story, is that Kevin Spacey is set to have a $40 million civil lawsuit dismissed after his accuser, who alleged that the actor sexually assaulted him when he was 14 years old in the 1980s, refused to identify himself.
"In court documents, C.D. detailed how he had met Spacey when he was 12 years old while he was a student in Spacey's acting class in Westchester County, New York. C.D. alleged that a sexual relationship began after he ran into Spacey again when he was 14 years old. Judge Lewis A. Kaplan in Manhattan, New York, ruled that the public has a legitimate interest in the identity of the man "because C.D. has made his allegations against a public figure," court documents obtained by CNN showed. Now, C.D.'s attorneys have filed a letter in a New York court on Thursday agreeing to dismiss C.D.'s case, which was filed last September. C.D.'s attorneys, Richard M. Steigman and Peter J. Saghir, wrote, "As we had previously informed the Court, C.D. believes he is unable to withstand the scrutiny and intrusion into his life if his identity is revealed in this matter," CNN reported."
