The man who is anonymously suing Kevin Spacey for sexual battery will have to reveal his identity but not to the general public, just to him. According to court documents, a judge ruled that John Doe “will reveal his true and complete name” to Kevin Spacey’s counsel. The order states and does not that:
The Parties will continue to confer in good faith to try to reach agreement on a more comprehensive stipulated protective order that addresses each Party’s needs and interest.
Unless otherwise ordered by the Court, Plaintiff’s name cannot be disclosed in a public filing with the Court while Plaintiff’s name has been designated as ‘Confidential.’ A filing Party will redact Plaintiff’s name or use the pseudonym John Doe on any materials filed with the Court.
Doe sued Kevin Spacey for sexual battery, gender violence, battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment. The man claims in October 2016, he was assaulted by the actor while giving a massage at his private residence in Malibu. The man claims Spacey grabbed his hand and forced him to fondle the star’s genitals and made an offer for oral sex. Doe said he eventually grabbed his massage table and left after refusing the actor’s alleged advances. He sued seeking unspecified damages.
