Bryan Singer Dismissed from British Actor’s Sex Abuse Case

A British actor has voluntarily dismissed his teenage sexual abuse case against Bryan Singer.

The dismissal from the actor, identified only as “John Doe 117,” was filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles on Friday.

“We are pleased the case was dismissed,” said Marty Singer, attorney for the director.

The John Doe plaintiff’s claim against Gary Goddard has not been dismissed, although Goddard’s attorneys last month filed a motion to have the case thrown out. A hearing is scheduled for Aug. 18.

The John Doe plaintiiff is represented by Jeff Herman, who also is pursuing a sexual abuse case against Singer in Hawaii on behalf of another accuser, Michael Egan. A hearing is scheduled for Sept. 9 on Singer’s motion to dismiss that case.

Egan also had filed claims in Hawaii against Goddard and TV executives Garth Ancier and David Neuman, but then dropped those lawsuits. Ancier has since filed suit against Egan and his attorneys for malicious prosecution and abuse of process.
