Michael Egan Seeks to Withdraw Sex Abuse Case Against Bryan Singer


A man who previously filed a lawsuit against the 'X-Men' director, claiming that the filmmaker touched him inappropriately when he was a minor, has filed a motion to withdraw the case.

A man named Michael Egan who previously accused Bryan Singer of sex abuse and three other men when he was a minor has filed a motion to dismiss the case. According to the motion, Egan wants to dismiss the case "without prejudice or an award of costs or fees, in the interest of justice." It means that he may re-file it again in the future.

Egan represents himself in the motion which was filed on Monday, August 4. On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Barry M. Kurren set a hearing for the motion for September 9.

Egan previously filed the lawsuit against the "X-Men: Days of Future Past" in Hawaii, alleging that Singer touched him inappropriately when he was a minor at a house in Encino and Hawaii. Egan later named Gary Goddard, David Neuman and Garth Ancier in a similar lawsuit. He withdraw the case against the three, but he filed a new case with similar accusations against Neuman two days later in Los Angeles.

In related news, the judge has allowed Egan's attorney Jeff Herman to leave his position. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Egan tried to keep Herman in the case but the judge decided otherwise. Previously, Herman said in his motion that their client-attorney relationship had broken down.
