British actor dismisses sex abuse case against Bryan Singer

A teen sex abuse case brought against moviemaker Bryan Singer by an unnamed British actor has been dismissed.

The plaintiff, identified only as John Doe, filed suit against the X-Men director in May (14) in Los Angeles, prompting Singer to file a motion to dismiss several weeks ago, insisting there was no legal basis for the suit.

The case was dropped on Friday (25Jul14), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Singer's lawyer Martin Singer tells The Hollywood Reporter, "We are pleased the case was dismissed."

Jeffrey Herman, the plaintiff's attorney, has yet to release a statement concerning why the suit was dropped.

The moviemaker is not yet completely clear of the sex abuse scandal that has been swirling around him for months - Michael Egan III's case against him is still pending.

Egan claims Bryan Singer sexually abused him at a party in Hawaii in 1999, when the plaintiff was still a teenager.
