A judge in Hawaii has ruled that Michael Egan III can drop his lawsuit against director Bryan Singer without prejudice, allowing Egan to refile at a future date if he wants. According to EW, Egan requested to drop the lawsuit when he was unable to find a new lawyer to represent him.
Singer tried to have the case dropped with prejudice but Judge Susan Oki Mollway denied the request.
The original suit filed in April claimed Singer had abused Egan in 1999, when Egan was only 17. Though Singer vehemently denied the claims, he dropped out of the promotional campaign for his film X-Men: Days of Future Past.
