Bryan Singer dismissed from sex abuse charges

Posted on

On Friday, John Doe 117 dismissed his sex abuse suit against Bryan Singer.

In the lawsuit, John Doe 117 had originally claimed that Singer and Broadway production exec Gary Goddard had sexually abused him. Singer had filed a motion to dismiss the case in July, but this latest dismissal came about before that motion was even heard.

The case was dismissed with prejudice, so in the future, the plaintiff will not be able to file new cases against Singer with the same allegations.

As for Goddard, John Doe 117’s lawyers filed a brief opposing his motion to dismiss. His case remains active.

John Doe 117’s attorney, Jeff Herman, issued the following statement: “Upon further review of the facts and circumstances, my client does not want to pursue those claims.” Marty Singer, attorney for Bryan Singer, told EW, “We are pleased the case was dismissed.” Goddard’s attorney did not immediately reply to request for comment.

Buzzfeed has a copy of Singer’s dismissal and the memo in opposition to Goddard’s motion to dismiss.
