The plaintiff claims in his suit that he was contacted by Goddard through social media when he was 14 and met Singer when he was 17 in London, with alleged impropriety occurring at various times.

How's that going to work? The age of consent in England is 16.

Yeah, that was my first thought, too.

My second thought was, "nice of Digital Spy to use Singer's rapiest rapeface pic":

His rape face is kinda cute. I wish I more his type (but I'm sure most people wouldn't mind being half their age again).

I thought the legal age was higher for gay sex. One of those buIlshiat discriminatory laws. I'm probably wrong though.

Oh, that's what Bryan Singer said when he was walking past the Catholic Boys School.

Federal law prohibits the travel to another country for the purpose of sexual contact with a minor.

Same scumbag lawyer representing the guy shown to have fabricated at least the meeting dates (and who coincidentally has a movie coming out about sexual abuse). And good luck proving intent after however many years

Wouldn't that be a criminal matter though, rather than a civil one (which I assume the suit above is)?

 I assume that there is probably a mechanism for civil action.

In any case, travel abroad for sex that would be illegal in the US due to age of consent laws is extra creepy even if it turns out it's not actionable.

Yep. I remember an old* housemate of mine was delighted with change. The law as it was would never had withstood a proper legal challenge.

*"old" as in "a long time ago". He was a housemate back in 1999 or so, and he was a young gay guy of 18 or 19 at the time. IIRC, he did some grassroots campaigning for the change in the law

I see the perv-whiteknighting is in full force again.  It amazes me how people can defend this creepo when he is facing mountains of evidence.  A new victim is brought to light almost everyday, and no arrest has been made!  Hollywood is above the law now I guess, and the majority of fark is right there holding it's hand and whispering in it's ear that everything is going to be all right, your movies will still make millions of dollars.
 
2014-05-05 09:30:26 AM
I do not have all of the information available so I am not sure if Singer is guilty or not. But using the "he has money, that's why he is getting sued" is not a great argument. There are plenty of very successful directors out there who never get accused of inappropriate behavior.

There wouldn't be nearly as many people defending him if
A)The same scumbag lawyer wasn't bringing the people forward
B)The 'evidence" is already contradicted with actual records showing it was impossible to be in those places at those times.
C)There wasn't a "documentary" coming out along with it.

I haven't followed this closely, so I can't tell if you're serious. What's the mountain of evidence? I know there's accusers, and a guy he was associated with was a perv, but I thought everything else was just rumors at this point. What's the arrestable offense?

Since you are talking about actRESSES I'd say probably someone else. He seems to prefer a different flavor.

I called this two weeks ago.

The attorney, Egan, is playing his cards with a strong level of media savvy. He knows how to keep the cycle spinning. This is the same playbook they used to take down Kevin "Elmo" Clash.

Singer should start looking for an exit strategy rather than trying to fight this thing, because the story's not going away.

The issue with Kevin Clash was a larger age difference. 14 and 18 = Freshman and Senior at most high schools. That happens a lot. I though the issue for Keven Clash was 17 and 23, aka high-school kid and a guy just out of college.

Maybe all the white-knighting is done by people I've blocked, but I don't see any white-knighting going on.

I do tend to block people if I think they are morons with little to add to a conversation, esp. if they seem like trolls or in flat-out denial about reality (birthers, for example).

I haven't followed any of it very closely. It certainly sounds suspicious, but "Hollywood is above the law" is BS, because the law calls for trials and courts and such, whereas there's been none of that and you've already convicted him.

If he';s been molesting minors, that is a grave injustice, but it is another to simply assume he is guilty when, however likely /unlikely, other motives could be in play.

And more BS on "majority of Farkers." Maybe a poster or two is blocked, but of the multiple posts before yours on my screen, only one is arguably white-knighting. Even if it's not just one but three or four, that's only a majority if you can't do math right.

You may want to get out your block-out marker.  I'm pretty sure you've been trolled.  This story sure has lost a lot of steam.  I think maybe the racist owner basketball guy may have contributed to this story fizzling out.  Although I guess it could be there wasn't much of a story there to begin with.

I see the guilty-until-proven-innocentslandering is in full force again.  It amazes me how people can condemn this director when he is facing manufactured charges.  A new victim is trumped up almost everyday, and no arrest has been made!  Hollywood is automatically guilty of any accusations without basis of fact now I guess, and the majority of fark trolls are right there holding the loud speaker and yelling to everyone that you are guilty if you are accused, especially if it's to get publicity for a movie/book deal.

I echo the other poster who questioned the rampant white-knighting and mountains of evidence. I personally give two shiats about Singer. However I think if there were 'mountains of evidence' on a specific charge that the police would arrest him. Mind you I'm talking about evidence evidence. Not accusations and links to tabloids. Go ahead and build your giant conspiracy fantasy where all the police and judges are in on some massive pedophile protection ring but the truth is likely much simpler than that. Hollywood hasn't a damn thing to do with anything. It's about wealth and power. Whether or not you are in Hollywood it's kind of hard to arrest people who have excellent legal representation unless you have some excellent evidence. That's just as true in Arkansas as it is in Hollywood. I don't know if Singer diddled underaged boys or not. But I feel pretty sure that if he has made a regular practice of it then then truth will out eventually.

I guess I just don't "get" trolling. How does pretending to be a dumbass for attention on the internet make someone feel clever? They're just pretending to be a different kind of dumbass than they really are. I just can't imagine anybody with any self-respect or dignity bothering.

rynthetyn: Federal law prohibits the travel to another country for the purpose of sexual contact with a minor.


It's unlikely that that's applicable, Singer most likely had legitimate business in the country and just looked up the guy he'd been chatting with while he was there.

Probably worth noting that 16 or 17 is the age of consent in most of the USA as well, the federal age being 18 is a result of one of those weird full faith and credit things where we have to set the national laws to the tune of the state that whines the loudest about it rather than any kind of national standard or average.  Somewhat ironically (since they're the source of most of the US's sex tourism for some damned reason, and are always going on about sexual liberation) the whiner in this case was California, which sets AoC at 18 and has disproportionate political influence sometimes.

Given that the least case was pretty much killed by the fact that Singer was in Canada during the socalled time of the rape of the last case, and this guy being represented by the same lawyer, I'm guessing this accusation will be tossed out of court as well.
