Bryan Singer Seeks Dismissal of Teen Sex Abuse Suit

Attorneys for Bryan Singer have filed a motion to dismiss a teenage sexual abuse case in Los Angeles involving a British actor only identified as “John Doe 117.”

Singer’s lawyers and the director claim there is no legal basis for the suit and demand a $300,000 bond to cover litigation costs, which are expected to be “exorbitant,” according to the motion filed in a Los Angeles federal court Thursday.

Jeffrey Herman, the same attorney who represented Michael Egan, who accused Singer and three other Hollywood figures of sexual abuse when he was a teen, filed the Doe suit in May.

Producer Gary Goddard, who also is accused by Doe, filed a similar motion in June to dismiss the suit.

A hearing on the motions is set for August 18.
