ACCUSER DROPS SEX-ABUSE LAWSUIT AGAINST BRYAN SINGER

Michael Egan, who filed a sex-abuse lawsuit in Honolulu against X-Men director Bryan Singer and who appeared with his attorney Jeff Herman at a news conference to detail his charges, has withdrawn the lawsuit. Herman withdrew from the case in July. Similar lawsuits filed by Herman on Egan’s behalf against entertainment executives Gary Goddard, David Neuman and Garth Ancier, had already been dismissed. Singer, claiming that Egan’s suit had damaged his reputation, had asked the court to dismiss the case against him with prejudice, which would have prevented Egan from filing it again, and had also demanded that Egan pay his attorney fees. But federal judge Susan Oki Mollway denied Singer’s request, saying, "Any alleged damage to defendant’s reputation may well be ameliorated by plaintiff’s voluntary dismissal of the action."
