Bryan Singer accuser applies for dismissal

Bryan Singer

A man who claimed he was sexually abused by Bryan Singer has applied to have the case dismissed after refusing to settle out of court. The X-Men: Days of Future Past director was accused in April of preying on Michael F. Egan, now 31, at a Californian house party when he was just 17 years old after he was allegedly plied with drugs and alcohol and “taken advantage of,” but now the Egan has made a legal bid to drop the case because his lawyer dropped him after he settled out of court, and he can’t find another lawyer to represent him.

Egan — who previously sought the dismissal in sealed documents — filed a claim on Wednesday (08.20.14) in Hawaii, asking for the case to be dismissed without prejudice, meaning he could file it again later.

He said in the documents: ”[The motion to dismiss] has little to do with the strength of [Singer’s] defense, but rather, it is a consequence of the current circumstances regarding my case, my lack of legal counsel, and my inability to proceed in this matter acting on my own behalf.”

Meanwhile, lawyers acting for the director want the case dropped with prejudice, and for the accuser to be liable for costs and fees.

They argued: ”By allowing Egan to walk away from this lawsuit now — without any consequences whatsoever — would be inherently prejudicial to Singer.”

    This is ridiculous, he needs to raise money to keep this lawsuit going to protect other boys in Hollywood. Singer should not get away with this!

    Bryan Singer needs to pay for using these underage boys for his pleasure, as if they were objects.
