Kevin Spacey Settles Suit From Deceased Accuser

From the Hollywood Reporter:

The mysterious sexual assault lawsuit brought by an anonymous massage therapist against Kevin Spacey is ending, according to papers filed in federal court Monday.

“John Doe” died, and after the accuser’s attorneys informed Spacey, the actor’s attorneys filed a notice of death in court. This began a 90-day clock for the accuser’s estate to be substituted into the case.

Now comes the settlement. Attorneys for Spacey and the special administrator filed a stipulation to dismiss the case with prejudice (meaning claims can’t be refiled). No terms of the deal were made public.

Another Spacey accuser died by suicide last week, leading to the viral hashtag #SpaceyBodyCount.
