28 Aug – "X-Men: Days of Future Past" director, Bryan Singer sexual abuse accusation has been dropped by the accuser Michael Egan, 31 who accused Bryan Singer for sexually abusing him back when he was a teenager in 1999.
According to Variety, the case was filed in Hawaii and the federal judge had granted Egan's motion for voluntary dismissal of the civil lawsuit brought against Singer back in April.
The reason why Egan decided to dismiss the case is because his attorney, Jeff Herman, announced that he wished to withdraw because his relations with his client had "deteriorated".
Fellow lawyer, Mark Gallagher who also represented Egan asked to be removed from the case as well.
Egan's sexual abuse lawsuit against Disney executive David Neuman and former TV executives Garth Ancier, have been dismissed too.
However, according to The Wrap, although Egan's dismissal of the lawsuit is good news for Singer, the resolution is not satisfying.
"Egan's suit was dismissed without prejudice - an option that gives Egan leeway to refile a claim against Singer, and one that Singer's legal team had argued against in a court filing earlier this month," The Wrap reported.
