U.S. accuser drops civil suit against Kevin Spacey

Kevin Spacey Arraigned On Sexual Assault Charge

In it, the accuser said Spacey bought him "multiple alcoholic beverages" before he then forcibly touched and fondled his genitals - the same allegations he made in the ongoing criminal case.

The accuser's attorney who submitted a court filing on behalf of the young man who accused Spacey of groping and assaulting him in 2016 says the suit is being dismissed "with prejudice".

"I have no knowledge of any deletions of messages on my phone", the man said.

Meanwhile, in an abrupt about-face Friday, the alleged victim's lawyer announced that a civil lawsuit filed against Spacey a week earlier had been dropped.

The Massachusetts District Court judge for Nantucket, the posh island community where the alleged aggression took place, called on Little Monday to testify.

The allegation of sexual misconduct against the two-time Oscar victor was one of more than a dozen to emerge since 2017 in the wake of the #MeToo movement - in both the United States and Britain - with devastating effect on his acting career.

After being pressed by Spacey's lawyer about whether he knew that altering evidence used in a prosecution is a crime, the man invoked his right against self-incrimination, and the judge said his testimony Monday would be stricken from the record.

The judge said he would allow prosecutors time to figure out how they wanna proceed moving forward but reportedly added, "It may be pretty hard to get around this in trial".

Spacey has pleaded not guilty.

The whiskey proceeded to rush out of the building and into the nearby Glenns Creek, which feeds into the Kentucky River. Michael Fortney suggested that the fire could have been caused by lightning that rolled through the area Tuesday night.

Spacey's lawyer said the case is "compromised" and needs to be dismissed.

Spacey is accused of groping the then 18-year-old man at the Club Car Restaurant in July 2016.

"He and or his mother deleted the exculpatory texts that were on the phone", defense attorney Alan Jackson said in a hearing this month. That's what we want.

The accuser's lawyer, Mitchell Garabedian, said they can not find the phone, but were able to retrieve a copy of its contents that had been backed up to a computer.

According to the 59-year-old Oscar-winning actor, a cell phone owned by the accuser contains evidence crucial to the case that could aid the star's defence.

"He only wanted one roller coaster ride at a time". The matter may well be dismissed for the reasons indicated.

The accuser and his mother - Heather Unruh, a former TV news anchor in New England - have told the court through Garabedian that the last time the accuser saw his phone was before his mother delivered it to prosecutors in approximately December of 2017.

Judge Thomas Barrett ruled in June the defense was entitled to inspect the phone.

The man who accused Kevin Spacey of groping him at a bar could be forced to testify about what happened to a cellphone wanted by the defence.
