Bryan Singer Accuser Drops One Suit

Michael Egan, the man who filed a sexual-assault lawsuit against X-Men director Bryan Singer, is dropping his lawsuit against former Disney executive David Neuman. Egan had filed lawsuits against Neuman, Singer, and two other executives in April in Hawaii, alleging that they had sexually abused him in 1999 when he was underage. “Today’s dismissal exposes this despicable lawsuit for what it really was: an unethical smearing and failed shakedown of a completely innocent man,” Neuman’s lawyers said in a statement. Egan’s voluntary dismissal was “without prejudice,” which means he can bring charges against Neuman in the future. It is unknown if he reached a settlement or if he plans to drop his other lawsuits.
