A civil lawsuit brought by the young man who has accused actor Kevin Spacey of sexual assault has been dropped, just over a week after it was filed, according to a new court filing. Spacey’s accuser, who was an 18-year-old busboy at a Nantucket bar at the time of the alleged assault, filed the civil complaint on June 26. 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 an ongoing criminal case.
The Smartphone images, which Little has said he shared with a then-girlfriend, allegedly show Spacey shoving his hand into the accuser’s pants and fondling him. But the plaintiff’s lawyers say they have been unable to find the smartphone, which Spacey’s defense team has demanded to see.
Little has said he has not seen the phone since handing it over to police investigators in December 2017. Police say they turned it over to the young man’s father, but he says he has “no memory” of it.
Spacey, 59, faces criminal charges of indecent assault and battery in connection to the same alleged July 2016 incident. The former “House of Cards” star has pleaded not guilty. The civil lawsuit accused Spacey of explicit sexual behavior and infliction of mental distress. It demanded judgment in an amount to be determined by a jury, including costs, interests and attorney fees.
