(NEW YORK) — The first of two men to file a sexual battery and sexual harassment lawsuit against John Travolta may revisit his case after dropping his complaint earlier this week.
The unidentified masseur has hired high-profile lawyer Gloria Allred, who tells People magazine, “Mr. Doe’s lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice which means that he is still legally entitled to file another lawsuit against John Travolta if he chooses. We are in the process of conferring with him regarding the next steps, which he may wish to take.”
The masseur had claimed Travolta attempted to have sex with him during a massage at a Beverly Hills hotel, but photographic evidence released by Travolta’s attorney to the media seemed to show that the actor was in New York at the time of the alleged incident.
A second masseur has made similar allegations in a separate lawsuit.
